Now you're asking, i watched this film when i was quite young, before colour televisions where popular in Scotland ( and no before you ask that wasn't just last year !), on a 14" b/w portable ! I remember it being a very emotive and moving film, dialogue was minimal but the last scene was the one that really stuck in my mind.
Just checked up on IMDB, it does sound like 'come and see', well worth the watch ! I didnt realise it was Bylorusk rather than Russian production, thanks for all the help with this everyone.
