Yuri Ilyenko - Bilyy ptakh z chornoyu vidznakoyu aka The White Bird Marked With Black (1971)
The synopsis from the IMDB:
Colourful 'optimistic tragedy' of a poor family in Ukraine, living in the Carpathian mountains near the Romanian border, during the Second World War. Five sons of the family make up the village band, but as the battles between the Nazi-supported Ukranian nationalists and the Soviets go on, their band loses one player after another.
