I suppose that never forgetting has its place, but not when it insists on such narrowly righteous fantasies of revenge.

Every scene drives home its point, plainly, that man's inhumanity to man is incurable.

Eye for Film

Occupying territory somewhere between Ivan's Childhood and Fateless, Come And See is an intimate epic in which all the promise of adolescence is perverted by war.

Stalingrad-born Elem Klimov's "Come and See" is a undiluted expression of cinematic poetry in the service of an unspeakably turbulent anti-war narrative about the 628 Byelorussian Villages burnt to the ground along with their inhabitants by the Nazis duri

Combustible Celluloid

Come and See succeeds through its use of nightmarish un-reality -- how we might see these events not through a documentary objectivity, but through an uncomprehending gaze of horror.

Sam Jordison

This is a real horror film -- it's painful to watch and there's no escape through thinking it's only a movie -- and it's correspondingly impressive.

A disorienting and undifferentiated amalgam of almost lyrical poeticism and expressionist nightmare.

Come and See, the last and most notable film made by the former Soviet director Elem Klimov, is another fusion of popular and vanguard styles, albeit put to more civic-minded use.

Film and Felt

One of the greatest films ever made, Elem Klimov's anti-war masterpiece is ironically named, as those with weak stomachs may want to steer clear.

Scene for scene, Mr. Klimov proves a master of a sort of unreal realism that seeks to get at events terrible beyond comprehension.

In Klimov's unshakable vision, death is casual, safety is impossible and beauty is backwards: this is peerlessly gorgeous filmmaking about absolute ugliness.

This Soviet-era Russian film displays the horrors of World War II in a manner that makes The Deer Hunter look like The Green Berets.
