A disorienting and undifferentiated amalgam of almost lyrical poeticism and expressionist nightmare. One of the greatest films ever made, Elem Klimov's anti-war masterpiece is ironically named, as those with weak stomachs may want to steer clear.

Perhaps the most terrifying, nightmarish film anyone has ever made about war. This film is a harrowing masterpiece.

Terrible - all you need to know.

It may have been a fine movie back in 1985 but by 2016 standards it really is terrible to watch.
Some scenes are long, like 2-5 minutes and all that happens is the camera following the actors around, while 80's scary sounds are played, mean while little or nothing is happening.
Its a drag to finish watching it and in Russian so you can't really do anything else while watching it because you have to read the subs.

I don't recommend this movie at all. I gave it two stars because the last 1 hour or so is entertaining because of the war scenes and the explosions, however there simply is no character development or story line, yes you're following the main character but it seems the story line is completely pointless and propaganda oriented.

This movie had a high rating, good synopsis and fine rating, but sincerely I think its people with nostalgia from back in the days when they watched it that give it a high rating, as an unbiased and younger audience, this movie was one of the worst I have made myself watch from start to end.

Much better was enemy at the gates, or with a communist theme "the brotherhood of war" (Korean).

This is a 1985 Soviet war drama directed by Elem Klimov about the Nazi German occupation of the Byelorussian SSR.
The film was so shocking for audiences that ambulances were sometimes called in to take away particularly impressionable viewers, both in the Soviet Union and abroad.
During one of the after-the-film discussions, an elderly German stood up and said: "I was a soldier of the Wehrmacht; moreover,
an officer of the Wehrmacht. I traveled through all of Poland and Belarus, finally reaching Ukraine. I will testify: everything that is told in this film is the truth.
And the most frightening and shameful thing for me is that this film will be seen by my children and grandchildren."
It is an amazing and shocking film.
