"Come and See",
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Come and See [DVD]  (DVD)
A film that I'd waited a long time to get, and had heard a lot about. Possibly the last quarter of the film was what I'd expected - a documentary-style recreation of the horrors of ethnic cleansing during Operation Barbarossa - but all of the preceeding footage is a confused fever-dream of interpersonal relationships between villagers and combatants. It shows how different the russian approach to film making can be, but although I normally applaud non-Hollywood products "Come and See" is much too "hit and miss" as a film to be consistently involving, despite it's undeniably realistic settings and gritty action scenes.
