Goofs

After the first aircraft attack in the North African desert, Stauffenberg's new officer recruit, with whom he strikes up an immediate rapport, is killed in the communications truck, Stauffenberg is so outraged, that he picks up a framed photo of Adolph Hitler and throws it to the floor. The next scene has Stauffenberg's car pull along side another car carrying an unnamed general, who proceeds to give Stauffenberg some final directions. The unnamed general's red collar patch carrying the traditional gold motif is facing the wrong way, as it is the left hand patch positioned incorrectly on the right side. See more »

19 March 2007 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

There is no question to honour the activity and exploit of Stauffenberg, but if you are not enough informed about the background of this heroic deed, you are getting really fast an uncritical illustration. It is historically incorrect to focus the whole "coup d'état" of the 20 July 1944 on Stauffenberg. It seems that it was Stauffenbergs own motivation to fulfill the assassination, but there were a lot of other people, who were involved in the preparation. Beck and Olbricht were leading characters long time before, for example. In this movie they just appear as minor characters compared to Stauffenberg. At least it should be "mentioned" that there were two other tries to kill Adolf Hitler the days before the 20th July. I know that it is almost impossible to realize a historical moment as the 20th July in less than two hours, but there were as well a lot of scenes which could be deleted: for example Stauffenbergs "turning point" in Tunesia and this "more funny scene" with this Swabian guy or the long discussion with his wife wasn't that important for the plot...more concentration of basics would have been better. However, I am a great admirer of Sebastian Koch and he was acting fantastic as Stauffenberg. Very deep and clear and not exaggerated at all in opposite to some other characters in this movie. (O. Dietrich was horrible as Goebbels...he should continue to make comedy!)
