Editorial Reviews

Product Description

There are no heroes or villains in this stark German-made film about a WWII battle that claimed nearly one and half million lives. Instead, it reveals the humanity and vulnerability of both Russian defenders and German invaders caught in an epic winter siege. Without preaching, it unflinchingly conveys the insanity of war. 1992; 2-1/2 hours.

Amazon.com

It's tempting to call this harrowing picture a World War II version of All Quiet on the Western Front: both films take the perspective of ordinary German soldiers at ground level. Stalingrad surveys the misery of the battle of Stalingrad, the winter siege that cost the lives of almost one and a half million people, Russian defenders and German invaders alike. Not unlike Spielberg's approach to Saving Private Ryan, German director Joseph Vilsmaier rarely steps outside the action to comment on the higher purpose of the war, assuming the audience is aware of the evil of the Nazi regime. Instead, we simply follow a group of soldiers as they endure a series of gut-wrenching episodes, events which have the tang of authenticity and horror. Vilsmaier has a taste for symbolism and surreal touches, which only add to the unsettling sense of insanity this movie conjures up so well. --Robert Horton
