World War II in Soviet Film

Soviet filmmakers portrayed the Great Patriotic War (or World War II) in numerous films produced from the 1940s to 1980s.

The AHA Perspectives provides an assessment of one of the last of the Soviet films about World War II, Elem Klimov’s Come and See (1985).

An introduction by Robert Brent Toplin is followed by Denise J. Youngblood’s analysis, “Apocalyptic Visions of the Great Patriotic War: Elem Klimov’s Come and See.”
