Storyline

It is autumn 1941. Acting Reichsprotector Reinhard Heydrich has taken up his position in the occupied Czech lands and Moravia. His old rival from the Nazi supremoes, Admiral Canaris, objects to Heydrich's cruelty, which raises great hatred everywhere he goes. Meanwhile, selected Czechoslovak soldiers undergo paratrooper training in Great Britain; the soldiers are then to be dropped into Czech territory to support the local resistance. Several groups of well-trained men will soon see their homeland. Written by NFA.cz

Movie That Will Give You Goosebumps
7 May 2014 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

When I've first watched this movie, number of details escaped my notice. But on second seeing, all the details fell in together and created a masterfully done piece of art.

First of all, the names of members of groups Anthropoid, Silver A and Silver B are not their real names - in truth, those are names that were picked for them as their undercover names, and when I watched the movie, it was one of the details that somehow escaped me.

Second, when I browsed opinions for this movie, quite a number of people were voicing number of doubts when it came to the scene where the church is already surrounded by Nazis and there is this one person that keeps on telling them that they should surrender and nothing will happen to them. That is actually a proved fact, described in quite a detail in several monographs detailing the whole Operation Anthropoid.

And as had been pointed before, the usage of Beethove's Fifth symphony in the end of the movie is definitely there to give you some final goosebumps, making you unable to listen to that piece of classical music like you did before.
