Come and See
After finding an old rifle, a young boy joins the Soviet Army and experiences the horrors of World War II.
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…
"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 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.
A soul shattering look at the war through the eyes of a young boy Florya Gaishun whom would soon see his innocence ripped to shreds before his very eyes and leave him a shattered shell of his former self!
The audience bearing witness to the horrible atrocities and complete and utter devastation does not walk away unscathed!
Aleksey Kravchenko performance was so incredibly real, so powerful it left a lasting mark!
The greatest war film, or film about war, of all time.
This is truly one of the hardest films I have ever watched. Come and See, directed by Elern Klimov features the period when the Nazi´s came and conquered Belo Russia and left the country side devastated behind. The destruction and atrocity of war is shown to us through the eyes of a 13 year old boy.
Come and See is low on dialogue and relies heavily on the visuals to do most of the story telling. The raid of the Germans on the village with the pillaging and destruction of it combined with the care free behavior of the Nazi´s is truly chilling to watch. The fear in the eyes and face of Aleksey Kravchenko as the lead character Flyora is pure horror and almost impossible to act.
A brutal film and not top be consumed lightly.
Brutal porém nem tão explícito, trabalha mais com as emoções sentidas em momentos de desolação do que necessariamente às mostrando graficamente. Ótimo filme, bem dirigido, movimentos de câmera inteligentes e perspicazes.
Come and See - 10/10
Brutality, destruction, and death has never been so hilarious! One of the best comedies I have ever seen.
Dr. Strangelove is...oh wait...wrong movie.
Come and See is one of the most devastating and excruciatingly painful film experiences I have ever had the pleasure of having. It's a lyrical, gut-wrenching anti-war film that follows a teenage boy named Florya who is at first excited and anxious to join the war. But then of course, he is exposed to the horrors of it, and as a result, so is the viewer.
It's a harrowing and bleak portrait of the horrors experienced during WWII, focusing on the Soviet's point of view, and is absolutely breathtaking in it's…
One could argue that a truly realistic war movie should be so hellishly horrifying that you would never want to sit through it a second time. "Come and See" is that movie.
One of the most brutal but honest War movies.
The first half, and specially a sequence involving mud, blood and an island ist beyond amazing and powerful. It's a shame that the second half, aside from the great ending sequence, is no more than a typical solid war film without anything really memorable, because the first half is very memorable in almost every aspect. As uneven as it is, it's still the best russian movie ever made.
Film #4 of the "Watching the best rated Letterboxd films" project.
It's another war film about the victims, but shot with a lot of style, as if it was an operatic nightmare. While the movie starts exploring the character of Florya. the entire second half is nazis killing russians, with a revenge fantasy playing at the end. As a war film it is a crude and direct portrayal of the atrocities of war, but it leaves not much room for anything else, including it's characters. 75/100
اعتقد انني احتاج فترة طويلة جداً لأنسى صورة وجه الطفل،كانت تعابيره بِمثابة ذكرى للحرب،والذكريات تاريخ،
Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
