There are films that make you cry. Ones that make you look away in horror. That destroy you emotionally. Leave you speechless. Sleepless.
And then there is Come and See.
You can read a million reviews telling you what to expect. You can read the harrowing plot. You can see it called the most disturbing war film ever made. You can find out that Elem Klimov never directed anything ever again. You can spend years preparing yourself for this film.
It won’t do. Because nothing will prepare you for Come and See. And that, believe me, that is a good thing.
