The deepest impact on screens doesn't always come from asteroids, as is demonstrated by "The Thief," a small, quiet film whose strength lies in its devastating metaphorical power and haunting performances.Written and directed by Pavel Chukhrai, one of Russia's most prominent filmmakers, this deceptively simple tale of loss, love and betrayal resonates far beyond its historical context of Stalinist Russia. And 8-year-old Misha Philipchuk makes a gently indelible screen debut as a young boy buffeted by the powers so carelessly wielded by his elders.

IF ANYONE doubts that Baltimore is headed in the right direction, consider the following: Not long ago, I discovered someone had broken into my car on the South Baltimore street where it was parked, smashing a rear window in the process. I took a quick inventory. The car radio was still there. So were the music cassettes stacked beneath it, the cheap sunglasses, 32 cents lying on the floor and the baseball shoes in the trunk. Something was missing, though. The only item the burglar made off with, I realized, was an audio tape set of a P.D. James mystery.
