          The day after they get the word they'll go home in two weeks, a group of soldiers from Spokane are ambushed in an Iraqi city. Back stateside we follow four of them - a surgeon who saw too much, a teacher who's a single mom and who lost a hand in the ambush, an infantry man whose ...best friend died that day, and a soldier who keeps reliving the moment he killed a civilian woman. Each of the four has come home changed, each feels dislocation. Group therapy, V.A. services, halting gestures from family and colleagues, and regular flashbacks keep the war front and center in their minds. They're angry, touchy, and explosive: can a warrior find peace back home?

          STALINGRAD is an epic look at the battle that turned the tide of World War II. A band of determined Russian soldiers fight to hold a strategic building in their devastated city against a ruthless German army, and in the process become deeply connected to two Russian women who hav...e been living there. Presented in IMAX 3D, the scale of the battle contrasts dramatically with the human drama of the Russian soldiers, the few remaining civilians and their invaders into Stalingrad. The Battle of Stalingrad lasted more than six months through the brutal Russian winter and ended with the German army surrendering on February 2, 1943, turning the tide of WWII. The film, set in 1942, follows a band of Soviet soldiers who take refuge in a house in the German-occupied half of Stalingrad, where they encounter a young Russian woman who has been hiding there. As a romance grows between the woman and one of the soldiers, the Red Army prepares for another devastating Nazi attack. Love, grief, passion and the freedom that only those who face death can experience are balanced against the sweeping devastation of war. Stalingrad was a huge box office success. With US$51,700,000, it set a new box office record for contemporary Russian films. It also set the record for opening weekend takings, with revenue of US$16,120,000

          In the crucible of war, men can kill without remorse. But the pressures of violence can also foster a bond between enemies even between captive and jailer until the lines of their conflict are obscured. So it is for Lieutenant-Colonel John Lawrence (Tom Conti), a British officer ...fluent in Japanese language and culture, tolerated by his captors and resented by his fellow prisoners. The precarious truce between the two sides becomes unsettled when headstrong and indomitable Major Celliers (David Bowie) enters the camp and the Japanese immediately set out to break him. Lawrence is drawn into the battle of wills as the conditions for the prisoners worsen and both he and Celliers become the target for punishment and torture culminating in the sadistic Sgt. Hara (Takeshi) offering Lawrence a 'Christmas present'.
