Come and See
The invasion of a village in Byelorussia by German forces sends young Florya (Alexei Kravchenko) into the forest to join the weary Resistance fighters, against his family's wishes. There he meets a girl, Glasha (Olga Mironova), who accompanies him back to his village. On returning home, Florya finds his family and fellow peasants massacred. His continued survival amidst the brutal debris of war becomes increasingly nightmarish, a battle between despair and hope.
Jesus Christ. On second thought, let's not send 13 year olds to war.
This is one of the most powerful war films I've ever seen. I've had a pretty great upbringing thus far in life and I've never personally experienced an atrocity so it's hard to relate or make judgements on how this compares to the real thing. Some movies do a good job of capturing what war can be like. From what I read, films like Saving Private Ryan, Jarhead, Black Hawk Down (in parts), Apocalypse Now, have some scenes that ring true with veterans. This movie is uncomparable to those in more ways than one. This movie sets a new standard in making war seem like hell. A…
Come and See is a film I find almost impossible to review. Describing watching a film as an 'experience' often detracts from the quality of the piece, but going by the profound effect the film had on me I really feel no other word can do it justice.
World War 2 films often seem to fall victim to Hollywood romanticism and sensationalism and while that certainly has some appeal, I always prefer my war films on the grimmer side. Grim and bleak is something the Russians do really well and combined with the atrocities that occurred during WW2 in Belarus, what we are presented with is one of the most disturbing and confrontational studies of the devastating effects of war…
One of the more upsetting experiences I've had in a long time, and a true document of evil so disturbing, only human beings could fathom such horror. The fact everything on screen actually occurred on my planet is proof we're doomed as a species...eventually, maybe not in our lifetime.
"And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him."
And hell followed. If there is one film that portrays hell most accurately, this is it. Smoke and blood and fire, where devils wear uniforms, cheering around a bonfire of human corpse, certainly not a place for a snot nosed kid like Florya. Ah, but the boy was still so naive, believed that the "war" was calling for him. Hence he picked up a rifle and marched towards it, or so he thought. Little did he know, it…
Come and See tore apart my emotions so much that I started crying in the last fifteen minutes. It's the last thing I expected to happen while watching a war film but I guess it's more than that. The entire film felt real to me in every way. I feel upset, disgusted and angry right now. I almost feel bad about giving it a five star rating because of the content involved but a film hasn't made me feel this way in a damn long time.. if ever! This film is going to stay in my memory for a long time.
One of the best realistic war movie
Aleksey Kravchenko's splendid performance
Devastating, Relentless, Disturbing. You can feel this movie deeply.
There are no cons, just watch...
I've waited so long to watch this movie but at last, I've seen it and I was mesmerized. I can say that Come and See is the best war movie I've ever seen. It deserves every compliment. The characters are so real that I thought this is a kind of documentary in the beginning. It reflects the effects of war pitilessly, so the war's brutality, and soldiers' ruthlessness can be seen all scenes. In the last part, I was shocked. Mozart's Requiem made me almost cry. You should…
This is true horror.
Since the age of 7 the genre of horror was prominent in my life through movies and experiences. I have seen the older masterpieces at a very young age and counting. It hardened me up. It is not easy to scare me with anything, because I lack a lot of fear. I have never had a single nightmare in my entire life. Come and See is probably the closest I have come to experiencing one. About important movies of their particular genre people often say it could change your perspective on life or the world. With this game changer of a perfect motion picture the whole probability ceases. This movie could not change your perspective. It…
A brutal film about the German occupation of Belarus and the Partisan resistance. The movie is very symbolic and has some extraordinary powerful moments, the movie may be a bit abstract for some, but it is very well done and not short on brutal and raw violence.
Aleksei Kravchenko's fear-petrified face will be with me the rest of my days.
Contiene algunas de las escenas más duras jamás vistas en una película de guerra. A pesar de ser propagandística (con ese final que a pesar se no ser adecuado no estropea el conjunto) en ningún momento cae en maniqueísmos y muestra una contienda bélica como lo que es: un Infierno y la pérdida de la inocencia.
Una de las mejores combinaciones de imagen y sonido que he visto.
Only saw this two times. It's been a few years back since i first saw it. And there's a good reason for that. Even the director Elem Klimov never made a movie after this as he never recuperated after the experience of going through this. And that you can so on screen. It's a very hard movie to watch and it's one you don't put in youre dvd/blu-ray player every now and then. It's a movie you only watch once to three times in a lifetime and don't want to watch soon after or ever again. The horror of war is really shown in the most brutal way possible. Saving Private Ryan was great at showing the real face of…
Welp.. now I have PTSD.
This is one of those films that is an absolute must watch. But only once. It's brutal. Someone else said it, this is the first war film that makes Apocalypse Now and other, more popular war epics look like light fare.
Harrowing and brutal depiction of Nazi invasion and atrocities from the point of view of a young Russian partisan covers somewhat familiar ground that has been told before but was never done with this level of realism. Nor will it ever be if only because no director could put his actors through this much physical danger and trauma today by, among other things, firing live tracer rounds at them.
Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
