One of the most beautifully shot films ever made. Whether the plot excites you or not, there is no doubting the brilliance of the Cinematography. Its stunning to look at.

Ivan's Childhood - Movie Review

Ivanís Childhood (Ivanovo Detstvo) is everything that I love about cinema. The cinematography, the direction, the unique transmissions and the atmosphere are what makes this a war movie like no other. I would describe this as a sinister fairy tale with a sense of visual poetry. What makes this even more impressive is that this is Andrei Tarkovsky first major film and already we got our first taste of Tarkovsky haunting vision.

Nikolai Burlyayev is one of the best child actors I've ever seen in a movie. He completely blew me away in this, as he is the one that delivered all the hard hitting emotions that happens around him. It's pretty heartbreaking to witness shell shock from a young boy.

This is definitely worth seeing. It's absolutely unmissable.
