Stalingrad has become hell and paradise for those who were worthy of awards, but the only reward they managed to get was love. How they won, and how they were not defeated, who they were and who was on the other side of the street, what secret they have taken away with them - the movie will tell this story.Written by
The Stalingrad set built near St. Petersburg was also used to film the opening and closing scenes of earthquake/tsunami stricken Japan. See more »
Captain Kan mentions how he had once been invited to meet Field Marshal Paulus. The problem is the movie takes place in November 1942 and Paulus was only a General at that time. Adolf Hitler didn't promote him to Field Marshal until January 1943, thinking that a Field Marshal would never surrender...He was quite wrong about that, Paulus surrendered to the Russians the very next day.

Unfortunately, this movie turned out to be what I expected from a Russian produced film about the Great Patriotic War. The film depicts the heroic soldiers and sailors of the Soviet Union fighting to the death the barbaric fascist invaders. The Soviet defenders are almost all saintly; one is even nicknamed Angel. The Germans are all beastly underlined by the atrocities they commit on screen against the surprisingly large number of Russian civilians living in the middle of the battlefield. This movie compares unfavorably with the German produced movie Stalingrad and Enemy at the Gates because of its simplicity. The only scenes that I found interesting showed the Germans preparing to attack and those which depicted the Soviets crossing the Volga. I have great difficulty recommending this movie especially considering alternatives.
