Dogs, Do you Want To Live Forever?
It is the winter of 1942-43, the place: Stalingrad. Despite heavy losses, Hitler's Wehrmacht troops have conquered Stalingrad, though they are encircled by the Russian Army.
This is the story of a German lieutenant who realizes that the war is senseless and that there is little hope for a final victory. Stalingrad
, also known as "Dogs, do you want to live forever?
" is an action-packed war film filled with great battle scenes, original war footage and German Newsreel clips that mold together to form a picture of the last desperate days of the most important battle of World War II.
This is the original film that much of the 1991 version of Stalingrad
was based upon. It tells the story of an army deserted by its leadership and left to battle two overwhelming enemies- the Russian army and the Russian Winter!
Starring Joachim Hansen, Wilhelm Borchert and Peter Carsten. Directed by Frank Wisbar, winner in 1959 of Best German Movies Award for Directing.
