messageThe Bigger Picture film club – ‘Come and See’ (1985) at East Dulwich Tavern on 19 January 2017

The Bigger Picture film club will be showing ‘Come and See’ (1985) at 8pm on Thursday, 19 January 2017, Upstairs at East Dulwich Tavern.

This is the study of the invasion of Byelorussia by the Nazis as experienced from the perspective of a young teenager ready to fight as a partisan for his country, and is considered one of the best films about war in all its incomprehensibility and insanity.

Set in 1943 as Nazi troops are invading the Soviet Republic of Byelorussia, the film follows young Florya (Aleksei Kravchenko) as he picks up a rifle to fight for his country. The film is an extraordinary achievement, confronting horror and suffering with the graceful solemnity of its images. Klimov himself had fled Stalingrad with his mother, and his experience informs the film. Through landscape, light, colour and sound as much as people, Klimov produces indelible images as testimony to the bleakness and inexplicable nature of war.

Director: Elem Klimov, writer: Elem Klimov and Ales Adanovich, with Aleksei Kravchenko, Olga Mironova
