British distributors Arrow Films have sent us a brand new trailer for the 20th anniversary Blu-ray release of Joseph Vilsmaier's film Stalingrad (1993), starring Dominique Horwitz, Thomas Kretschmann, Sebastian Rudolph, and Dana Vávrová. Fully restored, Stalingrad will be available for purchase on November 3rd.
Official synopsis: Set in 1943 when the Nazi Germans lost 350 000 soldiers while the Russians lost three-quarters of a million defending their city, this film follows a platoon of likeable German soldiers as they fight for every inch of the way, losing their humanity along the way. The film alternates between big battle scenes and deft characterisation as it constructs a damning indictment of war.
Great film. The German equivalent of "Letters from Iwo Jima". Tells the story from the German POV of the siege of Stalingrad; the neglect that Germany's troops went through, all for the gratification of their leader, who left them for dead. Harrowing War film. A must see for fans of the genre.
