Goofs

After the first aircraft attack in the North African desert, Stauffenberg's new officer recruit, with whom he strikes up an immediate rapport, is killed in the communications truck, Stauffenberg is so outraged, that he picks up a framed photo of Adolph Hitler and throws it to the floor. The next scene has Stauffenberg's car pull along side another car carrying an unnamed general, who proceeds to give Stauffenberg some final directions. The unnamed general's red collar patch carrying the traditional gold motif is facing the wrong way, as it is the left hand patch positioned incorrectly on the right side. See more »

Another Powerful German Movie
15 January 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In 1944, a group of high command officers plot an attempt against Hitler, and one of the leaders of the conspiracy, Stauffenberg (Sebastian Koch), goes to a meeting with the Fuhrer in charge of exploding the place. However, Hitler survives and the officers are executed.

"Stauffenberg" is another great example of the powerful German cinema. Based on a true event, with remarkable performances, tight direction and excellent reconstitution of a dark period of the contemporary Germany history, it is highly recommended – indeed a must-see film - for fans of war movies. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Operação Valkiria" ("Valkyrie Operation")
