Come And See follows the story of a young boy named Florya, played by Aleksei Kravchenko, as he experiences the brutality and inhumanity of World War II firsthand in Belarus. One of the most disturbing scenes in the movie occurs when Florya comes across a group of Nazi soldiers who are torturing and killing a young woman. The soldiers are laughing and joking as they torture the woman, and they seem to take pleasure in her pain. Florya is horrified by what he sees, and he is powerless to stop the soldiers. This scene is one of the most disturbing in the movie because it shows the depths of depravity to which humans can sink. The witnessing of this horrific act alters Florya forever, shattering his illusions and forces him to confront the dark side of human nature.

The climax of Yann Demange's '71 is also one of the most disturbing points of the film. When a Loyalist bomb goes off prematurely, the eerily silent streets of Belfast are transformed into a blazing inferno without warning. The protagonist, Thomas Hook, stumbles back into the pub he had just left, desperate to save the boy who had accompanied him. However, Hook is too late: he discovers the child's burnt body, gruesomely missing both arms.
