Storyline

During the mid 1920s, a network of spies collaborated with international business interests in order to rearm Germany, gearing her up for another World War. The Weimar Republic hid this secret weapons program under dummy companies all over Europe, including a renowned Film Production Studio. Three characters took the lead in this epic adventure full of glamour and the frantic energy of the roaring twenties: Spanish tycoon Horacio Echevarrieta (a local Citizen Kane), the most mysterious of all spies, Wilhelm Canaris; and a German Navy officer fascinated by risky business, Captain Walther Lohmann. Together, they built the best submarine in the World, and dreamt of an empire of high-tech military industry, until they were hit by the financial storm of 1929. Written by Hergueta, José Antonio

Trivia

The German secret network for weapon development abroad during the between-wars years also ended up in a scandal when it was known that Captain Lohmann, with full control of the millions devoted to this purpose, had made crazy investments on his own, without any supervision. The most amazing one involved cinema: a friend of him had persuaded Lohmann to invest in Phoebus films, a production company with certain success in popular films and a network of cinemas a well. Phoebus needed to update and Navy funds were of great help, but still could avoid Phoebus difficulty against UFA competition. When bankruptcy arrived in 1927-28 and it was published that Navy money had been cleaned via cinema, the whole story became great scandal as "the Lohmann affair". See more »

Quotes

José María Echevarrieta: They arrived by boat to the arranged location, a beach, but nobody was there. Dad said: "It means they're afraid this is a trap. I'll go." Dad went in the canoe with the sailors, landed on the beach, told the sailors to go and stayed there on his own. When the Moroccans saw that he was by himself, they came down.
