In 1944, a group of high command officers plot an attempt against Hitler, and one of the leaders of the conspiracy, Stauffenberg (Sebastian Koch), goes to a meeting with the Fuhrer in charge of exploding the place. However, Hitler survives and the officers are executed. This unsuccessful operation was called "Valkyrie Operation", and this realistic movie discloses this true event. Written by

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 »
Not to be confused with the Tom Cruise movie that just came out, this five year old German TV movie 'just happened' to be released on DVD in America right after that movie, uh huh... Anyway, it was surprisingly good quality for a TV movie and it was interesting to see the differences between the two movies. Of course 'Valkyrie' was able to go more into depth with the characters because it was a half an hour longer but there were many scenes that were very similar in both movies. This movie shows us the fate of the main character in the first scene. Bad idea! Luckily, I had already seen 'Valkyrie' so the whole movie wasn't ruined for me.
