Fedor Bondarchuk directs this Russian action movie set during the Battle of Stalingrad in World War II. The tussle between German and Russian forces for control of Stalingrad was one of the longest and bloodiest battles in the history of warfare. In the midst of the chaos a group of Soviet scouts under the command of Gromov (Pyotr Fyodorov) take residence in a civilian building while attempting to pave the way for a major Russian offensive. They quickly find themselves fighting to defend the building from German troops led by Peter Kahn (Thomas Kretschmann). To complicate matters, Kahn is in love with Masha (Yanina Studilina), one of the civilians sheltering in the building. Who will gain the upper hand, in love and in warfare, as the battle intensifies?

I don't know much about the background to the making of this film but think that other reviewers have missed the point. It clearly owes a great deal to the classic soviet novel 'LIfe and Fate' by Vasili Grossman - written in the 1950s but banned (known copies were destroyed) in Russia during the soviet era and only available now due to copies smuggled out at the time. Grossman was in Stalingrad during the battle and saw things at first hand. The film is based loosely on the chapters in the book that deal with events in House 6/1 where a group of Red Army soldiers with very much the same names as those in the film share a cut-off front line position with a female radio operator called Katya (as with the female character in the film). Bondarcuk was I believe involved in this one and he has made other films that try and explore the perspective of the ordinary soldier in the great patriotic war rather than the regime and the Stalinist leadership; this I think comes through in the film too. (The German officer character is very loosely based on one in 'Life and Fate' too, but not as closely and humanely.) These all need explored if Stalingrad the film is to be properly appreciated. OK its heroic but then so was the real thing if you take the trouble to find out about it. I would recommend 'Life and Fate' if you can be bothered with an 860 page book , but you should if you want to criticise this film and understand the real history from a Russian perspective.

No problem with the film quality itself only the content. This latest epic on 'Stalingrad' did no justice to the actual struggle that went on there, obviously the director has no concept of the time or the place. Typical Russian propoganda even to this day and whilst some scenes of battle were good the actual plot was rubbish and bears nothing to what the 6th Army suffered at what was supposedly set in November 1942. By that time the winter was setting in and food and ammunition were a severe problem. If any person reads this before watching this version, please try and get the 1993 version of 'Stalingrad' as this film does pay tribute to both sides in their will to survive.

I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing this film. It is rubbish compared to the Excellent 'Enemy at the gates'. The worst thing about it are the subtitles, obviously written by a third-form student of English.
Somehow Kretschmann manages to keep a straight face when Kahn tells Masha, “I came here as a soldier. You made me a beast.” In this instance it sounds just as bad in German, though the English subtitles are full of incomprehensible lines or howlers, trying for period flavor with words like “Fritz” and “Heinie,” but then having an apologetic soldier say, “My bad.” Apparently, considerably improved English-language subtitles have already been prepared for the film’s future festival and awards screenings. Amazon should not have offered this version for sale.

Thanks go to the reviewer below, C. P. Turbett Their well written review summoned up the film perfectly and made our decision to rent it. I also must add, having seen this film in 3D the action scenes and effects were superb conveying the depth and destruction and heavy toll that each side had suffered (which i hasten to add, were the best i have seen in a war film without overuse of CGI) This is the best Stalingrad film we have seen, this wasn't about a Jude Law etc but about russian actors more or less unknown bringing a snippet of life -and death- in a perfectly realistic moment of time that (may have) happened. Sure it's not without it's flaws, but every film ever made out of Hollywood can't tell the truth properly.
I found this quote.
The battle scenes he has created around the house are terrible and convincing. Lest anyone doubt that the reality of Stalingrad was as murderous as the director makes them seem, read this excerpt from the diary of a panzergrenadier officer: ‘We have fought for 15 days for a single house with mortars, machine-guns, grenades and bayonets. The front is a corridor between burnt-out rooms.
‘The street is no longer measured in metres, but in corpses. When night arrives — one of those scorching, howling, bleeding nights — the dogs plunge into the Volga and swim desperately for the other bank. Animals flee this hell; the hardest stones cannot bear it for long; only men endure.’
The film certainly conveyed that, which is what it was meant to do.

Possibly the most dreadful War/Love film ever made ! Muddled plot to say the least, it just jumped from random scene to random scene with no apparent story line. From the outset there was one depiction of a raging battle which was shot in slow motion, and then all of the subsequent battle scenes, which were very few and far between, were also in slow motion and it just didn't work! The Russians speech were dubbed into English, with American Accents, which was super authentic (bravo for that decision btw). I'm fairly certain that most people would prefer Russian speech with English written subtitles rather than a gruff looking Russian soldier speaking with an annoying dubbed yank accent. Also the actual script was seemingly for an audience of 8 year olds, such basic writing it beggars belief. I would give this film half a star, although I can't remember why it would deserve even that - an utterly appalling recital of the bloodiest battle in human history. Any Russian/ German veterans who had the misfortune of watching this tripe will feel really let down. The director should hang up his boots on adult action films and try making films for kindergarteners !! Only saw it through to the end for the sake of my Russian wife
