Trivia

It is coincidence that the original floor tiles from the real Moravec apartment have a design that resembles a Nazi swastika. The design was copied by the art department and used on the floor of the Moravec's set - The tiles can be seen clearly in the scene where Mrs. Moravcová is interrogated by the Gestapo. See more »

Goofs

When Gabcik switched on the radio after the assassination attempt it started immediately: valve radios in those days typically took at least half a minute to warm up to operating temperature. See more »

Awesome movie
13 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an awesome movie and the actors are wonderful. I think that this movie was not promoted enough. I traveled to another city hours away just to watch Jamie Dornan and I ended up falling in love not only with Jamie again but all the actors. I cannot say enough about how great this movie was. If you haven't watched it you must see it. Thank you to all the actors for trying to show us how it was in that time and how the people suffered during world war II. I think that we need to know more about the hero's that tried to help others and the actors showed us that. I cried at the end it is truly an emotional and very moving movie. It was really intense at some points in the movie I jumped out of my seat, but in all the actors stayed true to what was going on at the time. I salute the actors for their hard work and professionalism in making this movie a truly great movie!
