Storyline

Based on historical events, this is the story of the Austrian folk hero Andreas Hofer. Hofer was an innkeeper in the Tyrol in Austria, who emerged as the leader of the populace in their effort to withstand the occupation of their land by Bavarian troops, which were bound in alliance to Napoleon of France. Initially mentored and supported by a man of the church, Hofer soon became the sole leader of the Austrian freedom fighters and a hero among the population. However, powerful people in his own country soon used him to further their own political interests. Hofer, whose fighting had been motivated by a desire for social justice, did not find any support from the Austrian rulers when Napoleon was set on revenge. In 1810, Hofer paid the ultimate price for his bravery and was executed.

A very impressive historic drama
27 October 2002 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

I've been really impressed by this film which demonstrates that not only Hollywood can make a film about historic events that is truly gripping and moving. This film depicts Andreas Hofer not as the idolized figure that many of us learn about but shows him as a person who's made mistakes but nevertheless was a really brave man believing in the ideas he fought for.

One has to acknowledge that the actors (especially those from Germany) did a hell of a job learning the dialect as not all of them come from Tirol.

This film is definitely worth seeing not only for those interested in European respectively Austrian history.
