Gotta give credit to Stolper
12 June 2003 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

Stolper did not take from the book to the screen a lot of Stalin-praising garbage and concentrated on the battle scenes and interactions between soldiers. Let's not forget that this was the movie that brought Papanov to national fame.

One thing that is disappointing is high degree politicizing, which was unavoidable in a 1963 Soviet movie. The second half of the book and the movie deals with how Sinzov lost his party id card and is fighting to get back the credibility and rank. Other then that the movie works.
