WIN: Vendetta Prize Pack
Thanks to the great people at Vendetta, we’ve got a couple of great war films to giveaway on DVD:
Winter In Wartime
January 1945. During the last winter of WWII, Nazi occupied Holland lies under a blanket of snow. Food is scarce with many people heading east in a desperate attempt to find sustenance.
When Michiel (13) becomes involved in the Resistance, he learns that good and evil often sit side by side without anyone noticing.
The story is based on the beautiful novel by Jan Terlouw and even more than 50 years later, the story lets us feel the gruesome, but also adventurous aspect of growing up under the circumstances of war. Hugely successful in the Netherlands, the critically acclaimed “Winter In Wartime” is the Dutch entry for the 2010 Academy Awards and is on the Best Foreign Language Film shortlist. Beautifully realised by director Martin Koolhoven, this is a film that takes a fresh look at Dutch resistance from the perspective of a 13 year old child.
“it’s one of the most beautifully crafted movies” Hollywood Reporter
Attack on Leningrad
A soaring, action-packed journey of heroism and sacrifice as one crusading journalist desperately fights to uncover the horrors buried within the infamous Nazi siege of Leningrad in the savage winter of 1941.
At the height of World War II, journalist Kate Davis becomes trapped within the devastated city of Leningrad. Separated from her lover, American writer Philip Parker, Kate is rescued by Nina Tsvetkova, a member of the Leningrad militia who provides refuge for those escaping those horrors of war that have come so close to home. With the enemy’s grip closing ever tighter on the war-ravaged city, stray bullets and catastrophic bombing raids a daily peril, this makeshift band of survivors must battle to stay alive and fight for the ultimate prize: their freedom.
An epic story, inspired by true events, featuring an acclaimed, award-winning cast, this is the tale of the tragedy that befell Leningrad: at over 800 days, it was one of the longest and most destructive sieges in history.
