Hadn't seen a thread on this yet....
My wife and I saw it yesterday, very impressive. There was a lot of pre-release howling about Tom Cruise in the role of Von Stauffenberg, but we thought he handled the role very well. Terrific cast; many big-name actors. The sets and WWII military equipment appeared to be spot on, and in the opening scene there's a nice little segment of Afrika Corps troops engaging a strafing Allied aircraft (looked like P40s) with the 20mm anti-aircraft gun. Took me right back to WWII Online for a minute..
I'm sure there are a few minor historical liberties; they are billing this as "based on" the actual events. STill, it seemed quite accurate to me.
How did you like our national sweetheart Carice van Houten, in the role of Stauf's wife?
Is the North-Africa part 5 minutes or did they take the time to make something nice off it? If I'm going to see it it's because of North-Africa.
Is this movie being shown in Germany?
No. Germany got no cinemas. But we're proud to announce the close discovering of TV. j/k
I didn't make it!
stylie;4756026Is this movie being shown in Germany?
I guess...but dubbed to German ^^
I saw it, was pretty good, regardless of some of the slight historical inaccuracies.

like what ?
The Table in the conference room. Hitler was saved by a 3 inch piece of solid wood which went down the center of the table, in the film it is portrayed as a 3 inch table leg.
I take what n0e says way too seriously
9th April 2005
IIRC, from documentaries on the assassination attempt, that is what happened, the bag was moved to the other side of the table leg, and that, in combination with him leaning over the table saved Hitler *spits at ground in disgust*.
