A Russian film also known as “My Name Is Ivan” or “Ivan’s Childhood”, beautifully directed by Andrey Tarkovskiy. The movie is about Ivan, a 12 year old boy, played by Nikolay Burlyaev, who works as a spy at the eastern front. He can cross the German lines unnoticed to collect information, while three Soviet officers try to take care of him.
Vladimir Bogomolov wrote “Ivan” which is a fictional story but is based on real facts. It caused a sensation in 1962, no one had seen such a powerful motion picture about war and what it does to the youngest and weakest - the children. It’s a bleak, haunting and horrifying portrait of lost innocence and the childhood that was interrupted the very day the boy’s family was murdered.
