A Lutheran church outside of Germany. Those close with the minister, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, advise him not to return to Germany, but a doctor insists that he must due to his religious beliefs. Despite the possibility of persecution by the Nazis, Dietrich Bonhoeffer returns to Germany and preaches of the Jews and against Hitler and his Nazi agenda. Written by
Bonhoeffer was a very well done movie about the legendary Christian leader and minister Deitrich Bonhoeffer. It told his story, warts and all. It showed the philosophical dilemna that a Man of God struggled through and eventually is sacrificed for. It is a insight into a man who wanted to serve God and mankind, the conflicts, the way he touched others lives, then and now through is great writings. I recommend it.
