Elem Klimov / SUHH, 1985 / 146 min.

Don’t expect any heroic stories or Spielberg-esque spectacles. The classic Come and See has gone down in history as the anti-war film that turns war into a near-visceral experience. Elem Klimov’s portrait of Nazi terror in Belarus as seen through the eyes of child partisan Flyora won the Best Restoration Award at the Venice Film Festival.

Belarus, 1943: Heinrich Heydrich’s SS and Hitler’s Wehrmacht terrorise villagers in the expansive Soviet republic. 15-year-old Florja witnesses extreme crimes against humanity. He joins the partisans in the forests and ends up in his village of birth where everyone has been killed. The horrors he experiences turn a carefree youth into a prematurely aged man.
