Aleksei Kravchenko .... Florya Gaishun F
Browsing the net pre-2003 you would occasionally come across the odd nugget of information about this movie but before this new DVD release it was a hidden masterpiece. Set in Belorussia during the second world war it charts the descent of Florya Gaishun from innocent boy to Hardened Partisan. It really does wipe the floor with every other war movie with scene after scene of incredible imagary and acting. Everyone has their moments which seem indelibly ingrained in their memories from this movie. For me its the last scene where the camera follows the partisans marching through the forest to the most incredible classical score for what must be about five minutes. By the time the camera swings up into the sun you will be in tears and I gaurantee you will never forget this movie.
