Stalingrad the German movie

Recommended Posts

If you want to see another German made movie about Stalingrad, search for "Hunde, wollt ihr ewig leben?"

"Stalingrad" itself is good, but it depends on the individual taste of every different one.

Karl Vilsmayers intention was to provoke discussions, therefore this movie has pathetic or comradeship glorification, but also very realistic parts. It is more a play around some main characters (the leutnant, Schäfer,...). I do not know yet, if and what sources were used.

This film uses every aspect of war on the eastern front (assault, attrition, sewer, death, POWs, massaker on civilians,...). The part with the captured russian Tanya seems more unbelievable.
