Narrator: Adolph Hitler invaded Poland in September, 1939, starting WWII. By the winter of 1942, his armies were freezing and starving in the snows of Russia, where his best general had died of a heart attack, and America had entered the war. For the first time, Hitler's dream of a German empire to last 1,000 years was in doubt.

User Reviews

Possibly the best film ever made for television.
18 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

"Conspiracy" is, from beginning to end, a superb, flawless work or artistic and historical brilliance. Had it been made for theatrical release, it would have been a legitimate contender as best film of 2001.

Kenneth Branagh, Stanley Tucci and Colin Firth all give what could well be career best performances (especially impressive from Branagh, who has given us some of the cinema's all time greatest interpretations of Shakespeare to make up for drek like "Wild Wild West"), as does the rest of the cast.

"Conspiracy" is a must see for anyone who cares about World War II, the holocaust, or great acting. It deserves to be in the IMDB's top 250.
