Prague, 1942. The Third Reich is at its zenith, controlling most of Europe. Reinhard Heydrich, dubbed “the man with the iron heart” by Hitler, has risen to the top of the Nazi Party as head of the SS, the Gestapo, and the seemingly unstoppable architect of the ‘Final Solution’. However, a small group of Czech Resistance fighters are about to attempt the impossible – a veritable suicide mission to assassinate this embodiment of evil.

To celebrate the release of The Man with the Iron Heart on Blu-ray and DVD, we have an exclusive featurette taking us behind the scenes on the making of the film with cast members Rosamund Pike, Jason Clarke and Jack O’Connell sharing their thoughts on their latest project.

The latest offering from director Cédric Jimenez (The Connection) is based on the bestselling novel HHhH from Laurent Binet and tells the story of how the brave men and women of the Resistance sacrificed everything in the name of freedom.

Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) takes on the title character, the steely-eyed and unflinching Reinhard Heydrich, also known as ‘the blond beast’ and behind some of the worst atrocities of the war; Rosamund Pike (Oscar-nominated for Gone Girl) stars as Heydrich’s wife Lina; and Stephen Graham (Al Capone in Boardwalk Empire) is the diabolical SS general Heinrich Himmler.

New on Video: ‘Triumph of the Will’

Triumph of the Will

Written by Leni Riefenstahl, Walter Ruttmann, Eberhard Taubert

Directed by Leni Riefenstahl

Germany, 1935

It is never easy to look at Leni Riefenstahl’s Triumph of the Will as anything other than what Dr. Anthony Santoro quite rightly calls a “supreme propaganda film.” As that, it is nearly unparalleled in the dubious annals of film history. Contributing to its difficulty in terms of analysis, however, is the fact that it is, at the same time, more than simply a notorious document of evil in bloom. For all the troublesome features that recurrently arise through the course of this film—the domineering presence of Adolf Hitler being just one obvious example—this is one remarkably well-crafted motion picture. Its status as the ultimate work of cinematic propaganda is, indeed, a direct result of just how superbly powerful, sadly persuasive, and expertly realized the documentary is, for better or worse.

Von Trapp Hotel Plans Upset Salzburg Locals

Von Trapp Hotel Plans Upset Salzburg Locals
Residents of Salzburg, Austria are fighting plans to turn the villa that once housed the real-life Von Trapp family into a hotel.

The estate of Baron Georg von Trapp recently became a tourism mecca after fans of movie musical The Sound of Music realised the home, which did not feature in the 1965 hit, was the real retreat of the nobleman, played by Christopher Plummer in the film.

And now a developer plans to turn the famous mansion into a 14-room hotel, museum and wedding chapel.

Manfred Schitter, who heads up a residents' association opposed to the hotel plans, fears tourist buses and visitors will ruin life in Salzburg as more and more people learn about the von Trapp mansion.

He tells the Los Angeles Times newspaper, "The villa was a Sleeping Beauty and should remain a Sleeping Beauty."

The residents have handed over a 600-name petition to the town's mayor, hoping to block the hotel, which is set to open on 25 July.

Local historian Ines Eberi admits she has a problem with the mansion's dark past - it was once occupied by Nazi officer Heinrich Himmler - and doesn't think holding parties and weddings there will be fitting.

She says, "I find this a political issue to celebrate parties in it or to organise attractions there."
