This savage and lyrical fever of death, rage and terror, experienced through a child’s eyes is the ultimate WWII film. The film follows young Florya who joins a group of partisans fighting the Nazis in Belorussia. Separated from his comrades and struck deaf by German artillery, Florya wanders a battle-scorched Russian purgatory of villages enveloped in brutality and slaughter. Florya’s journey takes him through a gallery of exquisitely poetic imagery and human atrocity.
