Storyline

Loosely based on a true story, Christopher Plummer plays British bank robber Eddie Chapman who finds himself caught between the waring parties in WW2, the British and the Germans. working as a spy for both sides he tries to play the 3rd reich and the British against each other. the real life Chapman described himself as a completely 'amoral' person, which adds a nice philisophical touch to this somewhat colourful spy-flic. Is there any moral in making war ? Even if you're the 'good' fighting 'evil' ? Written by Void-4 <stringybark@iname.com>

Goofs

During the multi-service conference where the Germans were trying to decide what Eddie's next mission should be, Baron Von Grunen reads an intelligence bulletin referring to reports of an army being formed in the Portsmouth area, "possibly to be commanded by General Patton". The Colonel General then comments "Identify this US Third Army...". In actuality the fake army Patton was supposed to be commanding was widely known as The First US Army Group (FUSAG) and was part of the disinformation campaign known as Operation Fortitude and was designed to make the Germans think the invasion would be at Calais. The Third Army wasn't a part of WWII combat operations until after the Normandy breakout when Patton assumed command. See more »

a true gem among the usual spy 'n die movies
3 April 1999 | by (germany) – See all my reviews

ok, it has its flaws...and it's too long but nevermind that. 'fantastique histoire..' features a stellar international cast with christopher plummer playing the amoral eddie chapman playing the enemies against each other. it's dialogue and style is quite 'tongue-in-the-cheek', quite humorous at times. one of the more light-headed yet very entertaining WW2/spy-movies. definitely worth seeing, but don't take it too seriously.
