"Ivan's Childhood" aka "My Name is Ivan" & "Ivanovo detstvo"

"During WWII, Soviet orphan Ivan Bondarev strikes up a friendship with three sympathetic Soviet officers while working as a scout behind the German lines."  This film shows the struggle of a boy trying to find his way in the madness that is war.  This is truly a stunning film and I dare say a masterpiece from the Soviet Union.  Give the trailer a go and see what you think.

A great film,

The short story by Vladimir Bogomolov from which the movie was based.
