About Stalingrad

Year Released:
Though Hitler misjudged the strength and will of the Red Army in 1942, he was convinced that he could take Stalingrad before winter. Joseph Vilsmaier (The Harmonists, Brother of Sleep) directs his depiction of the Third Reich’s fierce battle of Stalingrad, where over a million people were killed in action or subsequently froze or starved to death. The film is told through the eyes of a German commander, Lieutenant Hans von Witzland, and his platoon, presenting the horror that average German soldiers endured, who were also victims of Nazi evil. In German and Russian languages with English subtitles. (HD presentation)
