A twelve-year old Russian boy spies on the Germans during World War II.

DirAndrey Tarkovskiy CastKolya Burlyayev , Valentin Zubkov , Ye. Zharikov .

 

Article: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/84370/Ivan-s-Childhood/articles.html

"Nikolai Burlyayev gives a remarkable performance, his expressive features allowing him to appear as a hungry, wide-eyed waif one moment and as a confident, expert assassin in the next. Equally unique is Andrei Tarkovsky's direction, which resembles a stream of consciousness narrative, blending realistic action sequences with the visions, dreams, and memories of the title character."

Kanal (1957)

World War II Resistance fighters under siege attempt a desperate escape through the sewers.

DirAndrzej Wajda CastTeresa Izewska , Tadeusz Janczar , Wienczyslaw Glinski .

 LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Andrzej Wajda. Teresa Izewska, Tadeusz Janczar, Wienczylaw Glinski, Wladyslaw (Vladek) Sheybal.

"Intense, almost unrelentingly graphic account of the final days of the September, 1944, Warsaw uprising in Nazi-occupied Poland. This is the second of Wajda's war trilogy, after A GENERATION and before ASHES AND DIAMONDS. Aka THEY LOVED LIFE. Not shown in U.S. until 1961."

When a classmate steals from them, two students inflict ever more intense tortures on him.

DirVolker Schlöndorff CastMathieu Carrière , Marian Seidowsky , Bernd Tischer .

 

Article: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/96570/Young-Torless/articles.html

 

"A key title in the inauguration of the New German Cinema wave, Young Torless (1966) marked the feature directorial debut of Volker Schlndorff, who had cut his teeth in the European film industry as assistant under Louis Malle and Alain Resnais. His education served him well for an intense character study set in an Austro-Hungarian boys' school in pre-World War I where a student's petty theft instigates an escalating string of punishments by his peers with the title character casually standing by and offering his observations."
