Full movie description "Stalingrad: Dogs, Do You Want to Live Forever?":1942. First lieutenant Wisse, young and still idealistic, is sent to the Eastern front where a renewed German offensive is in full swing. During his trip, he witnesses the hardships entailed by the occupation of Russia, but keeps his faith in the success and ultimate good of the national-socialist endeavour. Upon arriving at his new quarters, he quickly gets informed about the precarious nature of the strategic situation. As a matter of fact, Wisse is unusually well-placed to gain an unvarnished insight into the state of military affairs. His assignment: liaison officer to the Romanian army. His station: in the Russian plain, on the flank guarding the advance of the German sixth army to Stalingrad...
Reviews of the Stalingrad: Dogs, Do You Want to Live Forever?Made soon after the few survivors of Stalingrad returned home, wounds were still fresh & deep when this film was released just 14 years after the unconditional surrender. This film is important because was one of the first German post-war films to critically examine some very difficult & painful areas for the Germans.
Interestingly we never see Hitler's face - I'm sure there are a few reasons for that. The film addresses the lie that the Allies of Germany, Rumania (and Italy et al for that matter) were poor troops. They were good soldiers but were indeed poorly equipped & supported.
There have been criticisms for mis-matching of stock footage, incorrect tanks (T-34/86 instead of T-34/76) & subtitling. Most of this is minor, for example mistaking "Oberst-Leutenant" (Lt-Col) for "Oberleutenant" (Snr Lt) and mis-spelling General Hoth's name (as "Hooth"). The translating of "break-out" as "break ranks" is trivial. The actual footage spliced in may be of different battles but given the time & place this was made it seems a reasonable thing to do. In the end, getting squashed by a Russian tank or disintegrated by high explosive shells is much the same experience wherever you do it.
No, 14 years was not long enough for a deep introspection but this film made a solid start down that path. Well worth seeing. Look out for the exceedingly & implausibly beautiful Sonja Ziemann.
