Synopsis


Stalingrad
The bloodiest battle in the history of modern warfare serves as the focus of this sweeping war film from director Fyodor Bondarchuk (9th Company, Obitaemiy Ostrov). The year is 1942: The German army has devastated the city of Stalingrad in the Soviet Union, prompting a band of brave Russian soldiers to make their last stand in a strategic building on the bank of the Volga. When the cornered soldiers encounter a pair of Russian women who failed to flee before the German assault, an unlikely romance emerges against the backdrop of the defining battle that will ultimately become a crucial victory for the Allied forces -- but not before five months of ferocious fighting. Thomas Kretschmann, Petr Federov, and Yanina Studilina star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Decent historical account of battle of Stalingrad, proving to be the pivitol battle in WWII. This movie is as long as the battle was and sometimes slow, but overall a decent movie and mildly entertaining.

    Russia's entry for the Best Foreign Film falls flat. The love story is quite silly and out of place in the Battle of Stalingrad. The battle scenes are shot quite well but everything else is subpar.

    Let me begin by saying that this is not an action movie...it is a drama. While there are many battle scenes these are not the focus of the movie. It is about the struggles of people caught up in the battle of Stalingrad, soldiers (Russian and German) and civilians. The story is told by a rescuer (whose mother survived Stalingrad) to a victim under the rubble after a tsunami in Japan over half a century later. Great story...great acting. Highly recommended.

    Decent but not great. I liked Enemy at the Gates a lot more. Not that many movies about the Eastern Front of WW2, so glad at least to see something new.

    Very gritty WW II account of one of military histories greatest battles...intense action scenes,with added treat of increased depth throughout,if you view the 3 D version. Not Hollywood....much better acting .

    This movie is great. Great story, amazing cg visuals and overall a great WW2 history flick. The only thing I don't care for is the sub titles.
