Director: Elem Klimov.
Hundreds of films have been shot about the Great Patriotic War, but not one of them will convey to you as much hatred for the Nazis as "Come and See." The movie tears all the templates! without tedious dialogues and without shootings, he shockes the viewer with his truth.
Scene from the film: a simple Belarusian village, peasants - women, men, old people, many children. Like all the rest of the village, they sat down on benches in a hut, and wait ... crying for children, conversations in an undertone, when the Germans go outside the window, cars go. The Germans have fun, they are drunk from war, from impunity, distraught from their cruelty. They know that in a couple of hours everything will be over, and they will go to the next village ..
There is no place in the film for the pathos and heroism that is traditionally found in Soviet films (Fleur did not even shoot at the Germans). Only such paintings can convey to future generations what war is, so that such horror never repeats itself. You can review all the films about the Great Patriotic War, and not feel the cruelty of the German military machine; not German soldiers are shown here, namely animals that are alien to much of the human! Someone will say why such naturalism? Just to show that the war is actually dirt, moans, corpses, these are the frenzied eyes of a 15-year-old teenager, distraught with what he has to see and experience.
