The Star Film Poster


Russian action drama set during World War II. In the summer of 1944, Red Army troops are battling to prevent the advancement of Hitler's forces on the Polish border. Having gained intelligence of a massive attack planned by the Nazi tank division, the Russian army assembles from its diminished forces a ragtag group of snipers (codenamed 'Zvezda' - the star) to undertake a reconnaisance mission across army lines. Two previous scout groups, sent on similar missions, have never returned, so the seven men know that they are almost certainly facing annihilation.
