During Hitler's anniversary speech on November 8, 1939, a man is arrested on the Swiss border for possession of suspicious objects. Just minutes later, a bomb explodes in the Munich Bürgerbräukeller, immediately behind the Führer's lectern, killing eight people. The man is Georg Elser, a carpenter from Königsbronn in the Swabia region. When a map of the site of the assault and detonators are found on him, he is sent to Arthur Nebe, the Head of the Criminal Police in the Reichssicherheitshauptamt, and to Heinrich Müller, the Head of the Gestapo, to be questioned.

From them, Elser learns that his attempt has failed – that the man he wanted to kill in order to stop the bloodshed of the World War that had just begun, has left the Bürgerbräukeller 13 MINUTES before the explosion. For days, Elser is interrogated by Nebe and Müller. For days, he holds out against their questions. Until he finally confesses – and relates the story of his deed.

"This intense dramatization of the true story of a failed attempt to assassinate Hitler in 1939 is an unpleasant experience but a provocative one."
MaryAnn Johanson - FLICK FILOSOPHER

"The movie is an effective and frightening study of how a country can collapse morally and socially without its citizens realizing what is happening."
Pablo Villaça - CINEMA EM CENA

"In the cool, confident hands of German director Oliver Hirschbiegel - the man behind the definitive Hitler film, "Downfall" - this measured recounting unspools as an effective thriller rather than as a history lesson."
Jim Schembri - 3AW
