"The invasion of a village in Byelorussia by German forces sends young Florya (Aleksey Kravchenko) into the forest to join the weary Resistance fighters, against his family's wishes. There he meets a girl, Glasha (Olga Mironova), who accompanies him back to his village. On returning home, Florya finds his family and fellow peasants massacred. His continued survival amidst the brutal debris of war becomes increasingly nightmarish, a battle between despair and hope." (Mosfilm)

"Directing with angry eloquence, Klimov taps into that hallucinatory nether world of blood and mud and escalating madness that Francis Coppola found in 'Apocalypse Now'." (Washinghton Post)
