enemy at the gates

i was really amazed to see the sniper in the "saving private ryan", he was cool. so always looked for a total sniper movie. and "enemy at the gates" is the dream come true. though this movie is not new, i came to knw about it recently. i bought the dvd and its great. coz i like dramatic movies. In World War II, the fall of Stalingrad will mean the collapse of the whole country. The Germans and Russians are fighting over every block, leaving only ruins behind. The Russian sniper Vassili Zaitsev stalks the Germans, taking them out one by one, thus hurting the morale of the German troops. The political officer Danilov leads him on, publishing his efforts to give his countrymen some hope. But Vassili eventually start to feel that he can not live up to the expectations on him. He and Danilov... fall in love with the same girl, Tanya, a female soldier. From Germany comes the master sniper König to put an end to the extraordinary skilled Russian sniper.

danilov once said, that even in the communist country like russia, it is not possible to make everyone equal. there will be rich and poor even in russia. rich in gifts and poor in gifts. rich in love and poor in love. vassili zaitsev is rich with the love of tanya, whr danilov is poor. though danilov is well educated whr vassili is just an normal soldier, who became the hero of the country.

yesterday i was passin the road on foot, and saw a guy not much older than me, in a vista with his beautiful wife.... and thought its better in communist countries. atleast there would be no such discrimination. certainly it was his father's car. and i was on foot!! now dont tell me to look at the poor ppl sufferin all around us and think im previleged than some. i knw that. but i wanna say its just not fair. being poor in money is something u can cope up with. but being poor of love u cant. Danilov sacrificed his life, should i?
