Product Description

Harrowing Russian wartime drama, recounting the devastating Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union through the experiences of a young boy in Belarus. Young Florya (Aleksei Kravchenko) is forcibly recruited by the partisans, who are fighting a desperate behind-the-lines battle against the German invaders. Exposed to scenes of vicious conflict and brutality, Forya stumbles through a blasted landscape, witnessing atrocities as the Nazis ethnically cleanse villages and towns. Disorientated after surviving a German bombing raid on the forest where he is hiding, Florya joins the female partisan Glasha (Olga Mironova), and together they set off to retrace their steps back to Florya's village. But what they find there is only more death and destruction, until Florya becomes completely numb to the horrors of war.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not one star but five! 16 Dec 2011
Format:DVD
I fail to understand the logic of those who only gave this film one star. They must have been watching a different film to the one I did. I would be interested to know the ages of these people. I would guess they were born after, perhaps, 1980. I was born three years after the end of WW2. My mother came from Austria and experienced part of her life "under occupation", in her case it was the Russians. She befriended a Russian in England who lived under occupation- in her case it was the Germans. Therefore I do have a little comprehension of what was trying to be stated in the film "Come and See".
I would suggest that "the young" have no comprehension of what war is like from the point of view of a civilian in the middle of Europe from 1939 to 1945. At least I have had a second-hand experience of this by having known and spoken to various people.
The "blitz" that occured in England was by all means horrific but not as as horrifying compared to the atrocities committed "on land" during this terrible conflict. (I have ancestors who died fighting on both sides)
I suggest that the "one star brigade" go away to a film appreciation society and try and learn the true meaning of cinema. It seems like those who underated this film are those of the "instant gratification" bunch that society has spawned today.
This is a film that presents its case slowly and in a beautiful, artistic way, leading to a terrifying climax. If you are Russian then you have a right to critisise the acting. If you are not my advice is to always watch a film in its original language.
"Come and See" is a truely great film- if you do not agree I suggest you stick to "The Great Escape" with all its Hollywood pin-ups or even worse... "The Green Berets" starring big John Wayne!

Okay, Before I begin this review, I have a bit of an issue with some previous reviewers of this film who seem to be looking for 'art'.
Other reviewers have actually called this 'art house'. Art house? This film? Come on.
Come and See isn't art, and it definitely isn't a perfectly put together film, but it is a graphic portrayal of human beings fighting each other (I was going to write 'at war' there, but that phrase is too sanitised to describe the actual process).
I was a soldier for over 25 years, and believe me, this film takes you to places never covered by Hollywood, and it's a given in the military that the first film that depicts fighting in all its true horror would be banned outright. (How much film of fighting in Afghanistan are you being shown each evening)?
This film captures the fear and the horror of partisan warfare perfectly. On both 'sides'.
If anything, this film shows just how deep the Great Patriotic War (as it's known as in Russia) carved itself into the Russian psyche, and how it has influenced, and will continue to influence, their subsequent attitude to the West.
It is harrowing, disjointed, dreamlike and at times mystical. Put on this DVD, turn down the lights, and I defy anyone not to be moved deeply by the opening 10 minutes.
The film is so real, and the director catches so many subtle, horrible nuances, that it makes for a very very disturbing film.
Watch it, take it in, and realise what it's like to to have to fight other human beings, day in and day out, night in and night out, with no respite.
We have politicians who commit our young people to every new 'conflict' - sending them to possible death or disfigurement when they themselves haven't even been in a scuffle in a chip shop on saturday night.

Format:DVD
Once you've seen this 1985 movie by Elem Klimov, you'll never be able to forget it. The reasons for this are to be seen both in the aesthetic quality of the realisation of the script, to which Ales Adamovich contributed as well as the director, and in the extraordinary sujet, the brutal elimination of a Belorussian village and its inhabitants at the hands of the SS in 1943, something that happened to 628 villages in Belarus alone between 1941 and 1944.

Partisan warfare behind the frontlines forms the background of this profoundly shocking and deeply moving drama. The pubescent protagonist of the movie, the 14 year-old Flyora, against the will of his mother stubbornly and somewhat naively insists to be allowed to join the ranks of the Soviet partisans operating from the relative security of the impenetrable woods in the area of his native village. The partisans, however, don't think young Flyora to be of much use, and therefore give him only minor tasks like standing on guard. At the partisan encampment he meets Glasha, a girl romantically linked with Kasatch, the leader of the partisan unit. In the course of the film, the almost extra-terrestrial beauty of the girl sharply contrasts with the ever-increasing brutalities of war. After an air raid on the partisan camp, Flyora and Glasha decide to make it for the boy's nearby home village. However, the villagers have all been executed, quite likely because despite all precautions it must have become known to the German occupiers that a boy from the village had joined the guerilla forces. Their bodies can be seen for the fraction of a second piled up like culled cattle behind a wooden house.

Flyora feels guilty for what happened and heads back to his fellow partisans, leaving behind Glasha.
