Enemy At The Gates is an intense true-story war drama, which takes place in 1942, at the height of the Nazi
The anamorphically enhanced 2.30:1 DVD has a beautiful, desaturated look that nicely compliments the wartime setting of the movie. Images are sharp and detailed, with nicely rendered definition. Though at times highly contrasted for a harsh, stylized appearance, contrast and shadow delineation are well balanced. The desaturated colors and dim character deglamorize the picture, but the image is solid. There are few distractions in the way of pixelization or artifacts. Though the picture is mostly free of edge enhancement, its appearance is bothersome on occasion. Only those with the best home theatre displays will be able to decipher the smaller of the creatively designed end credits. (Suzanne Hodges)
