The Best Laid Plans Can Still Go Wrong!
on 22 July 2014
A first class recounting of the failed attempt on Hitlers life,during World War Two by members of the German Military Establishment.This version,produced in Germany,will inevitably be compared to the rather grander version,called"Valkyrie",starring Tom Cruise,released just a few years ago,and while that was excellent too,my preference is for this one,which seems "grittier'and more in keeping somehow,with how the attempt really was. It has the same ring of authenticity that the German version of the last days in the Berlin bunker had,"Downfall",which was also truly outstanding..
Perhaps,in the end,only the Germans themselves can do justice to these terrible events,and they are to be congratulated for dealing with them in such a truthful,unflinching,straightforward manner. Not to be missed.
