A fine movie
8 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

The movie tells the story of one Georg Elser, a German carpenter who plotted to kill Hitler in 1939 (although it has been suggested that the plot was actually staged by the SS).

This was Karl Maria Brandauer´s premier work as a director and not bad, he also stars the leading part.

This movie is a very exciting one and propably interests anyone who likes history.
