Come and See is a critically acclaimed 1985 Soviet war drama directed by Elem Klimov. The film follows the journey of a young Belarusian boy named Florya (Aleksei Kravchenko), who experiences the brutal realities of World War II after joining the resistance against Nazi forces. His once naive perspective of war is drastically altered as he witnesses the horrific atrocities committed during the German occupation. With powerful performances and intense realism, Come and See presents a profound exploration of the devastating impacts of war.
Klimov, along with Ales Adamovich, wrote the screenplay but had to wait eight years for approval to get the film made. The film was eventually produced to mark the 40-year anniversary of victory for the Soviets in World War II and garnered enormous box-office success. Come and See is acclaimed as a masterpiece, and has been featured in many lists of the greatest films ever made.
