Come and See

The thoroughly mesmerising chronicle of the initiation of a young teen (impressively played by Alexei Kravchenko) into the horror and insanity of war, as the Nazi's maraude through northwest Russia in 1943. An extraordinary film about the need to maintain one's humanity and dignity no matter what the situation. Don't miss this one.
