4.5 Great film, comical dubbing! jayples | 04/12/2008 | See all jayples's reviews (1) From the same production team as Das Boot, this film is about the bloodiest battle in the history of warfare, in which over 2 million Russians and Germans lost their lives. It came to be a turning point in WW2 and the film pulls no punches in revealing the brutal reality of combat.Sadly, the dubbing makes it almost comical at times, and having had it on vhs I thought they would've gone to the trouble of releasing a dvd version in german with english subtitles. But no.I've now bought a region 1 version online from the usa that has both english and german language tracks with optional subtitles and can honestly say that this is the only way to watch a film like this. For God's sake don't make the same mistake I made, it will only cost more in the long term, as you will end up buying the true version eventually. A stunning war film!Can also recommend Downfall and Sophie Scholl, these do have english subtitle versions on region 2 dvd.
