An historically important documentary
19 January 2005 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This documentary about German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer is a shocking look at the cowardly behavior and lack of integrity of the leaders of the Roman Catholic church in Nazi Germany during World War II. Bonhoeffer was the leader of a tiny group of clergymen and family members who had the courage to do the right thing, knowing that they might have to pay a high price.

Although the documentary details Bonhoeffer's early life at a leisurely pace before moving on to the more dramatic events of wartime, ultimately it is a fascinating look at what it takes for one man to find the right road. "Hanged on a Twisted Cross" had a powerful impact on me. I watched it a few years ago and it still haunts me.
