SAVING LENINGRAD is based on a true story, and critics are saying it’s “a mixture between Dunkirk and Saving Private Ryan“. Already released by Universal Pictures International in CIS, this film has been one of the biggest box office hits at the Russian box office in 2019.

A message from SAVING LENINGRAD producer Arkady Fateev:

“This project is very important and personal to me because of my grandfathers who fought in World War 2 and participated in battles which led to saving the great city of Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg) in 1944. 

Our film was released in Russia and CIS on January 27th, 2019 – on the 75th anniversary of the end of the Leningrad blockade. But this film is not only about war but also about love and hope!”
