Enemy at the Gates (2001) (131min)
February 25, 2014 - 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM
Directed by Jean-Jacques Arnaud
The battle for Stalingrad (1942-43) remains legendary for the extreme losses & suffering endured by the city’s people, the defending Soviet troops & invading Germans, all stranded without outside support or supplies over one of the coldest winters on record. Based loosely on Soviet sniper Vasily Zeitsev’s account, EATG focuses on two dueling, elite snipers (Jude Law & Ed Harris) but is noteworthy for its depiction of the uses of propaganda. For a fuller historical overview of the siege itself, see the documentary Stalingrad (2003).
