Stalingrad--1993 War Movie
Posted on: 7/9/2017 12:18:06 PM
This film is one of the historically most accurate war films ever made in that it displays the reality of soldiers in a battle situation as well as the particular circumstances of the Battle of Stalingrad, obvious when one compares this film to works such as Anthony Beevor's book "Stalingrad".

Unlike the better known "Enemy at the Gates" where the plot diverts into a sniper/hunting story, this film shows what war can do to individuals. Although filmed by Germans, "Stalingrad" is anything but a nationalistic apologetic film. It shows that war films can be something beyond flag-waving, jingoistic distortions of the grim truth of war, like so many Hollywood "war" products seem to be.

The scripting, acting, direction and other film techniques in "Stalingrad" are of the highest calibre.

It's a must-see film for anyone contemplating to join an army and to obey orders from any type of "Fuhrer"

Huge thumbs up here. Love this movie.
Great story line and a very sad ending, poor Fritz and Leut Witzland.
This beats Enemy at the Gates hands down!!

And there it is............... the 2013 Russian produced one.... tucked away in the corner there, lurking for unsuspecting viewers!

"Enemy at the Gates" -- the Movie -- was a bit slow although it gave an interesting picture of what it was like to be in Stalingrad. It was based on a couple of pages from "Enemy at the Gates" by William Craig. That book is one of the best I've ever read and I recommend it highly.
