Enemy at the gates (2000)

In September 1942, during the Second World War, Hitler intends to invade Stalingrad, a strategic city in the USSR separating him from total victory over Europe. The Russians are preparing to go on the defensive. One hero is to help spur on the troops.
Enter Vassili Zaitsev, a young Red Army sniper. His outstanding prowess as a marksman attracts the attention of people’s commissioner Ivan Danilov. The two young men become friends. Rekindling the flame of heroism, instilling within decimated troops the strength to fight the implacable German war machine: such is Danilov’s mission.
