Quotes

[talking about the ethics of killing a head of state]
Rachel: I think we *should* look into the possibility of using a sniper. You know there's rumour that in 1938 the British attaché in Berlin suggested that.
L/BX: Why wasn't it taken up?
Rachel: You can't just kill someone because of what they might do in the future. Assassination's hard to justify when you're not at war - it's generally called "murder".

For better or for worse?
13 July 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is a drama-documentary, dealing with the operation that set out to form a feasible plot to kill Hitler. It features actual footage from the time, someone who was actually there and speaks about it today, narration, and lastly, a group of experts, and actors playing real people involved in the planning in portions set during the time that the ideas were being gone over, both sitting around tables and discussing if this or that way could work, and, of utmost importance, if it would hurt, or benefit, the Nazi cause to go through with the assassination. OK, the last-mentioned group are seen doing other things, as well. This is all inter-cut, and there are times where this seems like it's scared of boring you. Some of the cinematography and editing is a tad flashy. The majority of this is great, though, and it can't be denied that this is well-made, and with impressive production value. Its running time is about forty-some minutes long for both of the episodes, so almost 100 total, or not much less than two hours. The performances are solid. This is interesting and informative. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know about the historical event that, in this case, *didn't* transpire. 7/10
