Goofs

Rost van Tonningen never had the faintest idea of the extent of the National Support Fund. He also never had a conversation with SD officer Friedrich Viebahn, such as in the film, in which he points out how important the underground bank is for the resistance. See more »

From a time when resistance actually meant something.
22 September 2018 | by jeremy-a-ferreiraSee all my reviews

Great story, great acting, great pace. I'm ashamed to admit that I didn't know about the great people this movie is dedicated to, but this film does a great job of introducing me to this interesting part of history that shows what it takes to trully resist tyranny. Echt een fantastische film!
