Not so in Elem Klimov’s 1985 film Come and See, in which relentless bombings and frenetic camerawork shatter the Belarusian countryside into an incoherent, fabulistic geography, and the invading Germans appear to coalesce out of the fog on the horizon like menacing apparitions. Nearly blocked from being made by Soviet censors, who took seven years to approve it's script, Come and See is perhaps the most visceral, impossible-to-forget antiwar film ever made.

Criterion's Solaris Blu-ray removed a blue tint while their edition of Stalker made a sepia tint more prominent. Come And See is a Belarusian film from 1985 that follows a young boy as he tries to survive and avoid capture by the Nazis at the height of the Holocaust. Booklet - 30-page illustrated booklet featuring "Orphans of the Storm" by Mark Le Fanu; "Read and See: Ales Adamovish and Literature Out of Fire" by Valzhyna Mort; and technical credits.Addition: Interestingly, I learned through members of our forum that the film was released with a 3. I did a few comparisons with the old DVD release I have in my library and to be honest was quite surprised by the massive upgrade. Uniqueness/Impact: A rare anti-war film that blends philosophy, biblical concepts, surrealism, and of course brutal violence to depict the horrors of the war in both a relatively realistic and poetic way. Eager to participate alongside the unit of considerably more weathered men, Flyora feels emasculated when he’s forced to remain behind in the partisans’ forest encampment with Glasha (Olga Mironova), a local girl implicitly attached to the militia unit because she’s sleeping with its commander, Kosach (Liubomiras Laucevicius).

Predictably, it can be very intense, but not because there is a great deal of cinematic drama in the progression of the action. Grain is very fine but is still visible and rendered cleanly, and I didn’t note any artifacts on screen.There’s no transcendent truth, no noble human dignity to be dug up from the mass graves of the Holocaust. Roger Deakins - in this new interview, cinematographer Roger Deakins ( 1984) discusses the visual style of Cone and See. Woman from the Killed Village may be the toughest one, and not only because it has flashes of archival footage around the atrocities committed, but the interviewee’s account in this case covers what happened to her, her husband, and the entire village, and there was one regret that still haunted her to that day that is incredibly devastating. The sound design gets elaborate in other ways, like muffling out certain sounds at times while enhancing others, and it never comes off screeching or weak. The Criterion Collection has announced that it will add six new titles to its Blu-ray catalog this June: Come and See (1985), The Cameraman (1928), Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019), An Unmarried Woman (1978), and Tokyo Olympiad (1965).
