Just for variety's sakes, I don't have the entire Tarkovsky's filmography in my top 10. So, I can say that this is the best WWII film I've ever seen and that contains a great acting by the kid that plays Ivan, a great music and of course, a great art direction, photography and cinematography. Strong and touching.
