The very name of this city is synonymous to the battle/siege that raged on for over five months which turned this city on the river Volga (It is currently named Volgograd) into rubble.

The film takes the scope of the 'grand' after the beginning intro with beautifully composed cinematography and eerie slow motion shots (possible homage to Sam Peckinpah?) of a massive river crossing assault by the Soviets into the minutiae of individual Russian, German soldiers and civilians lives as you get deeper into the film.

The character development is well done and keeps you engrossed in the movie. The plot may be a fictionalized account of 'Pavlov's House' and takes slight liberties in reality/realism in some of it's sub-plots which may be a vehicle to contrast with the unpredictable randomness of death on the battlefield.
Anyone looking for a good war film to view, would enjoy this one.

Heartfelt Condolences to the families of Ye Mengtuan and Wang Linjia, the two 16 year old students that lost their lives in Asiana Airlines Flight 214 at SFO yesterday.

Rented "Lincoln" today.

A very moving drama revolving around the persona of President Abraham Lincoln, the fight for the 13th Amendment of the US Constitution, the bloody 4 year struggle of the Civil War and basic, human ideals which many of us conveniently forget in the ongoing rat race of everyday life.

Highly recommended.
