Strongly recommended. Funny, but I had no trouble finding the relevance of the Biblical title of this powerful film. Perhaps it’s that the supplication is the essence of banal evil, a serene nudge to take a peek. Now, with neo-Nazis prancing up the Mall, the eternal danger of trusting simple solutions is resonant . . . ironic, coming from a director of the old Soviet empire, Elem Klimov (Rasputin). Come And See follows a 13-year-old Belarusian as he fights - - and fights to survive - - the German occupation of the Soviet Union during World War II. Klimov’s camera spends an eternity resting on the face of young Florya (Aleksey Kravchenko, The Star) and ages him ten years in a single season of war. His superb acting is matched by Olga Mironova (her only movie) playing a young girl who attaches herself to him. It’s a bleak story, but a necessary reminder of an old evil.
