Drama, War

In WW2, twelve year old Soviet orphan Ivan Bondarev works for the Soviet army as a scout behind the German lines and strikes a friendship with three sympathetic Soviet officers.

The critical consensus

The most lyrical war movie ever made pristinely restored.

Tarkovsky’s debut boasts one of the greatest openings in film history in the story of a scarred boy who knows nothing but war, existing as an army scout.
