Don't wear socks

I cannot recommend, the Russian made film Come and see by director Elem Klimov, enough.

If you get the chance to see this, grab it with both hands. Just a word of warning though, this is not for the faint hearted. Klimov' portrayal of the then Russian peasant Provence of Byelorussia (now Belarus) struggle against the Nazi's shows the horror of World War two in a way that few other films have.

Oh, and what ever you do, watch it with the original audio, the dubbed version does it no justice.
