5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Movie about a Critical Moment in WWII
By Doug Bowker on June 6, 2017
Certainly a very important story that deserved to be told as well as possible, and this film does 100% justice to it. Extremely well directed movie, with an eye for detail and gritty realism throughout. I am very familiar with the history of WWII but admit I knew very little about this particular part. It was fascinating and heartbreaking in equal measure.

This is the type of movie where no punches are pulled, and the farther one goes along it will become abundantly clear just how high a price must be paid when fighting an evil like the Nazis. The last 30 minutes in particular are not easy to watch, but then again this is actual History, not just an action packed adventure. As far as violence goes, this would fall into very strong R territory, due to the realistic approach they took.

All the actors are top notch and as usual Cillian Murphy gives a great performance. The camera work is excellent without drawing too much attention to itself, and the same could be said for the costumes and music: well done and always in the service of the story. Though some of the starring cast were international, it's evident from the credits that almost everyone else was Czech or Eastern European. Obviously this was a story near and dear to many in the production, and it really shows.
