Russophiles Unite! A Russian & Soviet Movie Podcast

Come and See (Elem Klimov; 1985)

July 4, 2019

Sasha Ilyukevich, London-based Belarusian singer-songwriter and poet, joins Ally Pitts for this harrowing journey into Nazi-occupied Belarus in 1943, which stars Aleksey Kravchenko and Olga Mironova.

CONTENT WARNING: Come and See contains sustained depictions of atrocities, including rape and mass murder. It's a very, very tough watch. SPOILERS from about 49 minutes in until the end.

You can watch the film at Russian Hub.
