A bleak & startling movie, 16 May 2001
10/10

Film recounts resistance to Hitler from 1933 until the July 1944 attempt on Hitler's life, when all unraveled. Interviews with widows of some of the conspirators & with people the conspirators helped out of Germany.

Is there a greater understatement than when Frau von Moltke says, "I really think they [the Nazis] did Germany a great disservice when they killed him [her husband]." It's so amazing that so many Germans in govt. & military absolutely hated Hitler but so few did anything. [Generals hated Hitler because of a) the Hitler oath & b) the Roehm putsch, in which several generals died.] Until he was executed, Adm. Canaris's office spent most of the war fouling up German intel. reports & producing false passports. Ask yourself whether you could keep a high-level job for 5 years & not only never once do what you were supposed to do but do everything you could to sabotage the outfit you worked for.
