The war movie to end all war movies. There has never been a movie quite like COME AND SEE, a poetic masterpiece of the brutality and horrors of war. Not for the faint of heart but essential viewing for all cinema lovers.


It’s said that you can’t make an effective anti-war film because war by its nature is exciting, and the end of the film belongs to the survivors. No one would ever make the mistake of saying that about Elem Klimov’s COME AND SEE.” – Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun Times

Scene for scene, Mr. Klimov proves a master of a sort of unreal realism that seeks to get at events terrible beyond comprehension.” Walter Goodman, The New York Times
