The breath-taking story of a man who nearly would have changed the world. 1939, when Hitler convinced millions of people at the height of his power, one said a radical No: Georg Elser, disparaged as an assassin, is one of the greatest resistance fighters.Written by

It was a good film. Nice profile of a man. Enjoined
So I did not quite get the title. Maybe I missed it. At first, I assumed that the main character had a 13 minute window to kill Hitler and he missed it. I gonna go with that theory, cause the other one is that this plot in the movie was likely 13 minutes of the 114 minute film.
Most of the film is a profile on the main character based on a true story. How he lived his life as a musician in Germany during the Nazi reign and about a love affair he was having with a married women. It's fascinating how many films about World War two are coming out lately. I'm seeing one in the theaters every mouth. It's seems like the world wants to reminisce about that time (And I say the world cause none of these films are American). In some case I feel like it's a those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it situation. In other cases, I think it's an issue of just a new story about World War 2 just pops up. In the case of this guy, the movie indicates that it was very recent that they uncovered his status as a resistance fighter and his plans to create a very crafty device that can blow up The Führer
So I would say this, that I liked the movie. It's more about the man who tried to blow up Hitler vs. about his plan to blow up Hitler but it is an engaging story.
