About the Film

 

It's 1942 and the German & Russian armies are embroiled in one of the most momentous battles of World War 2, the Battle of Stalingrad. Defeat at Stalingrad could hand Germany victory in Europe and Stalin has sent Kruschev to personally oversee the city's defence. In another corner of the city Danilov, a political officer encounters Vassili Zaitsev, a simple soldier from the Urals who possesses an extraordinary skill, he is a first class shot with an iron will. Danilov realises that Zaitsev could be moulded into exactly what Kruschev needs to boost troop morale. Zaitsev joins a sniper unit and his dangerous missions are chronicled and embellished upon by Danilov and before long a hero is born. But while Zaitsev glory rejuvinates others, Danilov becomes jealous of the man he created when they both fall in love with Tania, a courageous comrade fighting in the ranks alongside them. Eager to break the Russians new found resistance the Germans draft in Major Konig their own celebrated sniper. As the battle wages on these two lethal sharpshooters engage in their own personal deadly duel, stalking each other amoungst the rubble of the symbolic city of Stalingrad.
