Attack on Leningrad, or just Leningrad, is a 2009 war film written and directed by Aleksandr Buravsky, set during the Siege of Leningrad.[1]


In 1941 Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union and their troops besieged the city of Leningrad. Foreign journalists are evacuated but one of them, Kate Davis (Mira Sorvino), is presumed dead and misses the plane. Alone in the city she is helped by Nina Tsvetkova (Olga Sutulova) a young and idealist police officer and together they fight for their own and other people's survival.
