A Superb Biopic of German General Rommel
- Rommel review by PV
There have been several films made about Rommel and he pops up in countless war movies too.
The most famous is the classic Desert Fox from 1951. Worth a watch.
Also there is Valyrie with Tom Cruise and the superior German film Stauffenberg (2012) about the plot to kill Hitler which is part of Rommel's downfall.
This German TV movie is excellent however.
Those who know a lot about the Second World War and this story willl enjoy it as will those unfamiliar with it. Debate rages still about how Nazi Rommel was and how much he knew of Nazi atrocities.
I particularly liked the way real-life newsreel footage (from Germany) was spliced into this film.
Ulrich Tukur stars and is superb, as he is as John Rabe in City of War.
