Hailed for its epic scale and masterful battle sequences, this is Europe's biggest and most expensive film production ever...
ENEMY AT THE GATES features an extraordinary cast bringing to life one of the most heroic and horrific struggles of World War II - the Battle for Stalingrad.
With over 1 million Russian lives lost in this battle, Director Jean-Jacques Annaud balances the epic with the intimate, the historical with the personal...
Legendary Russian sniper, Vassili Zaitsev (Law), has become a national hero with the full backing of the head of communist propaganda (Fiennes) and endorsement of the local commander, the man destined to become Soviet Premier a decade later, Nikita Krushchev (Hoskins) himself. The inspiration he gives to the Russian army might just be enough to tip the balance of power and save Stalingrad from the invading German forces. So to break the Russian spirit, the Nazis send in their most decorated and cunning sharp-shooter, Major Konig (Ed Harris). As the city crumbles around them, Vassili and Major Konig begin a cat and mouse game of daring, skill and patience. In this one-on-one struggle to the death, each man is waiting for the perfect shot...and only one of them will walk out of Stalingrad alive.
