Trivia

The opening and closing of the film have Heydrich flying to and from the Wannsee Conference, which took place on January 20, 1942. However, Heydrich was officially grounded by Heinrich Himmler after he was shot down by Russian anti-aircraft in late 1941. See more »

Goofs

When Georg Liebbrandt exits his car, after it has pulled up to the mansion, the "D" can be seen in the lower right affixed to the bumper. The same "D" that is initially visible on Heydrich's car. As stated in a previous entry the "D" was not put into use until 1949. See more »

Classy acting in a chilling theatrical piece
28 January 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In January 1942, General Heydrich chaired a meeting of Hitler's top men from various Nazi bodies including the Party, the SS etc. The reason was to `discuss the inevitable and try to bring it about in the most practical way under one command'. The `inevitable' being the spiralling problem of the huge numbers of Jews and how best to deal with them.

This is a chilling dramatisation of the meeting that sealed the fate of millions of Jews. The story is quite simple and could be easily put on the stage - it is merely a board meeting with the focus being on the characters of those involved. The film plays as a normal board meeting - no one in the room is portrayed as monsters - in fact Heydrich is almost comic. One of the most chilling elements is that no-one in the room believes the Jews were normal people, some are horrified by the thought of killing them all on production lines but even then their alternatives never approach humane options.

This very wordy production would never have succeeded without strong actors and here it is blessed by not only famous faces but unknowns giving great performances. It is difficult at first to accept English actors playing Nazis but you soon get past it. Tucci and Branagh are both excellent and Colin Firth is the best I've seen him as Dr Stuckart from the Interior Ministry. I could literally name the whole cast as the members of the meeting are all well played.

This is not presented as a terrible moment and the men are not portrayed as Indiana Jones style evil Nazis. The facts are allowed to speak for themselves and it's all the more chilling for it. Overall this is an excellent film that benefits from great acting, a great script and great direction.
