A Must-see Movie about a War Hero - 13 Minutes review by PV

Spoiler Alert
25/06/2016

This film is in German with subtitles - and it is one of the best films about the rise of the Nazis and Hitler I have ever seen.

A fascinating story that I had never heard of before.

Well written/acted/directed.

Maybe a bit heavy so not much comedy here and a bit grim.

But a clear 5 stars

Prewar Resistance to Nazism - 13 Minutes review by DD

Spoiler Alert
18/08/2017

A very fine and moving piece on one of my favourite subjects.There was more internal resistance to Hitler than is often credited.There are not too many films on the subject matter.The film is well acted with a strong and small cast Goerg Eslers heroine story is conveyed extremely well.

An interesting historical account - 13 Minutes review by PJ

Spoiler Alert
Updated 16/08/2019

It is a good film that shows more particularly how the Nazis were gradually able to take over and the population, in the main, chose to collaborate. The hero is a remarkable character in many ways and the movie gives a good and accurate account of his life. The film lacks dramatic tension at times, in my view, and therefore is not a masterpiece, but it is a very good film.
