Goofs

The cars of Schleyer's convoy are not depicted 100% correctly - Schleyer's real S-Class W116 Mercedes was NOT a Model 450 SEL 6.9 ("just" a standard 450 SEL), and the W114 /8 Mercedes of his bodyguards is shown as being a Series 1 model (in reality it was a Series 2 280 E). See more »

A very pleasant surprise!
5 October 2009 | by (Monaco) – See all my reviews

TV movies don't get much better than this. Very well made thriller about a true story, told the way it should be; without exaggerating, without unnecessary melodrama, realistically, with all the right details and no stupid mistakes (even the cigarette brands where authentic for the period), the closest possible to what it was really like.

Most of all, the filmmakers do not worry about being politically correct, they tell a story about a very troublesome period in recent German (and not only) history, worrying only about being true to the story itself! How refreshing! My compliments, very well done!
