"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.
