Films that deserve your attention - Come and See

Come and See is easily the most harrowing and realistic war movie ever made and is not a film you can enjoy as such but its brutal realism and hauntingly beautiful visuals are guaranteed to have a powerful impact on you and will almost certainly remain with you forever. This provocative tale follows a young boy as he gets caught up in the atrocities of World War 2 and struggles to survive amongst the death and carnage as hordes of Nazis invade Belarus and destroy almost everything and everyone they encounter. Come and See makes Schindler’s List look very tame in comparison and must be seen to be believed; powerful films that stir deep emotional responses from the viewer are few and far between, and this is a rare example of a genuinely moving film that will leave you utterly shell-shocked long after the credits have finished rolling.
