The most dramatic court scene I've ever seen.

10/10
Author: laugh-23 from United Kingdom
23 November 2008

This film is based on the book, Letters to Freya - A Witness Against Hitler. The plot is basic, being the true life story of a German who dared to hold meetings with others who opposed Adolf Hitler and was subsequently arrested. The drama is in Von Moltke's handling of his own trial, which he knows is a sham that will certainly end in his execution. His eloquent denunciation of the premise on which he was arrested, his trial and the hypocrisy of the men who sat in judgement on him are played out in a subtle crescendo. Their anger and embarrassment are well played against Von Moltke's calm yet damning testimony. His verbal bravery in court in the face of death, and the amazing peace in which he approaches his execution, make this film, for me, a masterpiece.
