An excellent historical film, 8 February 2003
Author: Alexander_Severus from London

This film has a solid plot and remains quite faithful to the historical events which it portrays. Some scenes involving the conspirators are necessarily conjecture but they always remain plausible and certainly do not compromise the facts for the sake of dramatic license.

There is a good mix of action and dialogue throughout the film and a tense soundtrack which does a lot to add to the atmosphere. The performances of many of the actors are first-rate. Ian Richardson as General Beck and Ken Colley as Field-Marshal Keitel are characteristically convincing. The presence of Helmuts Lohner and Griem as General Fromm and Field-Marshal Rommel respectively help to give the film a greater feeling of audio authenticity which adds to the effect of excellent costumes and sets. Jonathan Hyde is a convincing Goebells and demonstrates a wonderful range. The best performance by far is that of the little-known Welsh actor Mike Gwilym who puts in a masterly portrayal of the fast declining Hitler.
