Outstanding
27 January 2014 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is the best film on the attempt of assassination on Hitler. Very well researched and presented. Maybe more information for non-German-natives they wanted to know, but I can't understand why the 3 top-1000 viewers rated 3.0 on the film. It's educational, thrilling and moving. Esp. interesting were the interviews with original people of the events. We also learned a lot about the motivation and morality dilemmas of some of the involved. It's sad to know, that more people died in the 10 month after the 20th of July then in the years before. Your getting frustrated to learn how close to success the assassins had been, even after they realised that Hitler survived.
