Come and See

a contemporary film shown at the PDX fest last year:
about the occupation of Stalingrad--the name escapes me so maybe
someone else can chime in with that info--that seemed, to me, almost
completely foley driven

and somewhere in the back of my mind I see some harrowing footage of
soldiers frozen on a lake, to each other, to their weapons; I believe
this was in a film I saw sometime between 1982 and 1984 as part of
the Portland International Film Festival, so I think it would have
been made sometime around that time period...

...maybe I'm thinking about Germany, Pale Mother--I've really got to
see that again sometime--but that wouldn't be a Russian film.
