The supplemental features on the disc include rerelease trailer; archival interview with the director; xclusive new video interview with German Klimov; new interview with cinematographer Roger Deakins; archival programs; and more. For example, there are prolonged close-ups with peripheral movement which leaves the impression that one is looking at a portrait that is slowly coming alive.

Flyora's heartbroken mother, who has to take care of his younger twin sisters, begs him not to abandon her, but he unceremoniously rejects her plea and then heads to the nearby forest where the partisans have built a large camp. This deceptive idyllic disintegrates, however, when the Germans bomb and storm the empty camp, kicking up clouds of dirt and smoke that never seem to fully leave the screen for the rest of Come and See’s duration. Klimov’s is the more in-depth interview, the filmmaker giving a history to the project (born out of a desire to show a true representation of the war after most films had been action-adventures) that spanned about 7 years because of censors and such having issues with the subject matter (his original title, Kill Hitler, was also a no-no). Without betraying the real—by, in fact, remaining more faithful to it than most fictional remembrances of WWI have been— Come and See suggests that the war’s horrors were the ultimate unassimilable experience of the shadowy depths of the human mind. Filmmaker Viktor Dashuk made a five-part documentary series that showcases the atrocities and horrors that were experienced by the Belarusian people during the Holocaust.Come And See takes its title from The Apocalypse of John, where Johnny Cash used the words in his song "The Man Comes Around", stating, "And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, "Come and see! As Nazi forces encroach on his small village in present-day Belarus, teenage Flyora eagerly joins the Soviet resistance. At one point, Flyora convinces Glasha to check on his parents back in his village, only to not find them there. While playing with his best friend, Flyora discovers an old rifle and then declares before his mother that he has made a decision to join the local partisans.

Commander Kosach's (Liubomiras Laucevicius) reluctance to treat the 'new recruit' as he does the rest of the partisans, however, quickly pushes the boy away from the camp.

Claude Lanzmann's 10-hour documentary Shoah captured perhaps the most visceral stories from all aspects of life from that time, but it's with Soviet film director Elm Klimov's 1985 film Come And See that some of the most disturbing visuals are shown that have capsulated the Holocaust in a strikingly visual way, similar to the recent film 1917, a vision that is not soon forgotten.
