I just saw this German movie yesterday not long after hearing about it. (The entire flick is on Youtube). Basically, it follows a group of German soldiers in WW2 through their experiences at the infamous Battle of Stalingrad through the harsh winter. It is said to be quite realistic aside from a lot of fictional characters and various props not actually used in the battle.
In my opinion it's worth a watch, as seeing the battle through the Germans eyes is rather interesting but it did have several drawbacks. Mostly because it could have benefited from a larger budget and the acting could have been a bit better. Though I didn't let those two things get in the way. In the end, I did enjoy it and recommend it to anyone interested. Yet it certainly doesn't qualify as an all time favorite in my book.
Just keep in mind that if you don't speak German, I suggest finding a subtitled version. Since it's illegal to post movies on youtube, I won't be linking it though it isn't too hard to find it yourself of course.
Anyone else see this?
