The body guard that carries the old man is the actor who played Darth Vader
A war film from the point of view of those who suffer the most: the civilians. A kid goes and joins the partisans because it's the right thing to do, but he very quickly learns that war is hell.
Possibly one of the only war films to use minimal blood and gore and effectively portray the indiscriminate violence and destruction and horror of war. And the horror of survival.
