Enemy at the Gates is war film written and directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud and based on William Craig’s 1973 nonfiction book Enemy at the Gates: The Battle for Stalingrad, which describes the events surrounding the Battle of Stalingrad in the winter of 1942 and 1943. The screenplay was written by Annaud and Alain Godard. The film’s main character is a fictionalized version of sniper Vasily Zaytsev, a Hero of the Soviet Union during World War II.[6] It includes a snipers’ duel between Zaytsev and a Wehrmacht sniper school director, Major Erwin König.

The cast includes Jude Law as Zaytsev, Rachel Weisz as Tania Chernova, and Ed Harris as König, with Joseph Fiennes, Bob Hoskins, Ron Perlman, Eva Mattes, Gabriel Marshall Thomson, and Matthias Habich.

In 1942, following the invasion of the Soviet Union the year before, Vasily Zaitsev, a shepherd from the Ural Mountains who is now a soldier in the Red Army, finds himself on the front lines of the Battle of Stalingrad. Forced into a suicidal charge by barrier troops against the invading Germans, he uses impressive marksmanship skills, which had been taught to him at a young age by his grandfather, to save himself and commissar Danilov.
