A fresh moral perspective on Nazism's trajectory., 14 April 2009
Author: Audobonpark from United States

This documentary is surprisingly suspenseful and gripping since the outcome is known in advance--the loose knit group of civil servants and military failed to Assassinate Hitler. And yet the way that this movie unspools the various strands of the plot, especially the details about how secretive all communication had to be, were fascinating. As was the sense of it all that was, or that was attempted to be made, by the few surviving plotters, their friends, and wives. Terrific use of archival footage--the decadent Wiemar era, scenes of war and battle, the post-war devastation--that featured many images previously unfamiliar to me. The movie strung them together in montages that were memorable and stirring and in some way uplifting. The same can be said for this fascinating movie. A find.
