Storyline

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 Iliya Tilkin

Trivia

While much is said of Stalingrad being of symbolic value for Hitler, it was a transit hub for oil deliveries for the Soviets, who got their oil from Chechnya and Azerbaijan at the time. The whole southern focus of the Axis campaign on the Eastern Front was to capture the Caucasus oilfields. See more »

Goofs

Towards the beginning of the film, Ju-87 Stukas are shown attacking boats on the Volga, dropping bombs while they are in level flight. The Stuka was a dive-bomber - there is no way they could drop bombs that way and hope to have any kind of accuracy, certainly not on moving targets. See more »

Maybe Lost in Translation
7 June 2014 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In the present days, a Russian rescue team is saving lives in Japan after a tsunami. They find survivors and their leader calm a youngster down telling the story of his five fathers.

In 1942, a group of Russian soldiers hold a strategic building in Stalingrad against the German troops to protect the Volga River for the crossing of their comrades. They meet the seventeen year-old teenager Katya (Mariya Smolnikova) and she becomes the pride and joy of the band. Meanshile, the German Captain Koln (Tomas Krechmann) falls in love with the Russian Masha (Yanina Studilina), who resembles his deceased wife. But love in time of war may be tragic.

The impressive German war movie "Stalingrad" (1993) is one of the best of the genre ever, depicting the bloody Battle of Stalingrad. The Russian "Stalingrad" (2013) is not a remake of the German movie but a melodramatic and corny love story in the environment of the devastated city and heroic attitudes of the Russian soldiers. The CGI, scenarios and battle scenes are top-notch but part of the dialogs may be lost in translation since there are long sentences in Russian that are resumed in one sentence in the subtitle. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Stalingrado" ("Stalingrad")
