    I just finished watching Enemy at the Gates, and noticed an anomoly.
    Chapter 16 @ 97:06 minutes
    There are a group of Russian soldiers running away from the camera, then all of a sudden, they just kind of disappear and a new group of soldiers is running away. I didn't hear any discontinuity in the sound, so I'm guessing maybe there was a break in the original print they were adding sound to, and that's the end result of the splice. I've sure seen/done enough of those in my time, but in a theatre situation that results in a glitched audio track also.
    Has anybody else seen this?
    I don't suppose anybody happens to remember having seen it in the theatre and noticed it (as if)...?

    I never noticed it before, it looks like a bad edit/splice hidden in the confusion of battle; Check out the scene when Jude Law lands at the Russian command center to see the general, he clearly has a bleeding wound in his forehead but miraculously by the time he reaches the end of the pier he’s now sporting a band-aid on it, I figured this happened after re-editing the scene but I didn’t see any extra material related to this scene in the “additional scene” section.
