Excellent Portrait of the German Resistance
8 March 2018 | by aumufan24See all my reviews

As a long-time fan of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his life story, I found this film, a mix of reenactment and documentary, to be quite accurate in its depiction of the real German resistance. Bonhoeffer and the other noble resistors of the Nazi regime stood their ground against the evil of Nazism, and when Hitler found some documents that showed what he had been doing, he couldn't bear it and ordered these people "liquidated." If you're looking for Oscar-winning acting, you won't find that, but that's not the point of the film. The point is what they were doing for the German people, trying to resist and even assassinate Hitler. Focus on the story, that is where the treasure is found in this well done film.
