(Enemy at the Gates) USA-GERM.-GB-IRL. 2000 di Jean-Jacques Annaud con Jude Law, Joseph Fiennes, Ed Harris, Rachel Weisz, Bob Hoskins. Durante l'assedio di Stalingrado (Sett. 1942-Genn. 1943) un govane contadino degli Urali (Law) diventa, come cecchino, un eroe della propaganda sovietica. Quella nazista gli contrappone un bile ufficiale (Harris), tiratore altrettanto infallibile. Il torto di Annaud, sopravvalutato regista francese cosmopolita, non è di avere appiattito un evento militare di importanza storica (un milione di morti russi, 250.000 tedeschi) su un duello da western, ma di averlo raccontato, in sintonia con le mode del tempo (stalinisti cattivissimi, comunisti pentiti, russi senza strategia: da chi fu sconfitta la Wehrmacht?), nei modi di un anticomunismo cialtrone e di un sentimentalismo piagnucoloso. Qua e là momenti intensi a livelli di tensione spettacolare e di scavo psicologico. Costo: 90 milioni di dollari, il 70% di fonte tedesca. E si vede. ( )

Book description
An all-star cast lights up the screen in this riveting epic hailed as a vivid dramatization of one of history's titanic turning points. (Gene Shalit, TODAY) The year is 1942 and the Nazis are cutting a deadly swath through Russia. Under the leadership of Kruschev (Bob Hoskins), the citizens of Stalingrad are mounting a brave resistance, spurred by the exploits of their local hero, Vassili Zaitsev (Jude Law). An expert sniper, Vassili's deeds have become legendary - thanks to propaganda produced by Vassili's best friend, a political officer named Danilov (Joseph Fiennes). To stop Vassili, the Germans dispatch their best sniper, Major Konig (Ed Harris), to Stalingrad. When Vassili and Danilov both fall in love with a beautiful soldier (Rachel Weisz), Danilov deserts his friend, leaving Vassili to face his German counterpart alone. As the city burns, Vassili and Konig begin a cunning game of cat and mouse, waging a private war for courage, honor and country.
