A dark vision of the childhood of a child in the middle of war. Since his first film, Tarkovsky presents Already what would be his style and his aesthetics. Poetic and depressing, ivan childghood presents us with the horror and suffering of war through the eyes of a child. Something dreamy and confusing but it is still a beautiful film due to His great photography.

"An astonishing film. Tarkovsky's first feature film about a russian kid working as a "spy" in WWII. Just beautiful. And heartbreaking. "

Soviet censorship (5 movies items)

"Tarkovsky spent 16 years of his career unemployed. His first film, Ivan’s Childhood (1962), which won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, was mocked in the Soviet Union. It was marketed as a children’s film and only shown in the morning. Officials were upset that the film was seen as pacifistic beyond the Iron Curtain; in the heat of the Cold War, this contradicted Soviet foreign policy. "
