Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a true Christian, a theologian, a spy for Allies and a great person, who dared to stay in Nazi Germany and preach what he believed was true - The Word Of God. We all know this sad story, so there is no spoiler here, the movie shows tragic events of 1939-1945 Germany, with all the evils of Hitler's regime, oppression, executions, glaring false propaganda, and above all - the inevitability of death penalty. This is a very decent film, almost a documentary in its delivery, with swift pace through the war years and all main events depicted well and sorely truthful. Chilling evil of Nazi regime is shown extremely realistic, and the tragedy of those few who dared to murder Hitler is all the more naked and fragile. The weaker side is a low budget and it shows, also, a little bit amateurish performance of some actors is evident in several scenes. These weaknesses aside, the film is good and must be watched as a great example of Godly man fight
