Must Watch: First Trailer for '13 Minutes' from Oliver Hirschbiegel
"We determine the truth." I really, really dug this film - my review from the Berlin Film Festival premiere. StudioCanal UK has debuted a trailer for Oliver Hirschbiegel's 13 Minutes, a fantastic film about the man who almost killed Hitler. In 1939, a lively carpenter from Germany named Georg Elser built a bomb from materials he could find and planted it at a venue Hitler was about to speak at. The event ended early, and Hitler left the building 13 minutes before the bomb went off, escaping narrowly. The film profiles Elser, played by Christian Friedel, and his time before the war, exploring his motives and desires for this plot. It's a nice trailer for a great film, and I hope it gets a US release date soon. Because I want to see it again.
From the director of the Academy-Award nominated Downfall - 13 Minutes tells the incredible true story of the man who nearly changed the world - Georg Elser (played by German actor Christian Friedel), a carpenter who attempted to carry out a bomb plot against Hitler at a Nazi convention in Munich 1939. The film follows Georg's fascinating confession, of not only how a seemingly non-political man came to this point, but also delving into his personal relationships and how they were affected by his beliefs, especially with the love of his life, Elsa. The film premiered at the Berlin Film Festival (read my review). 13 Minutes is directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel (Das Experiment, The Invasion, Diana) from a script by Léonie-Claire Breinersdorfer & Fred Breinersdorfer. It opens in the UK this July, but has no official US release date yet.

Looks great. Kind of similar to VALKYRIE.

I am definitely watching this. Georg Elser definitely had one of the most humanistic reason to try this tyrannicide before many in Europe realized what is coming. And, he was one of the most complete, and emotionally interesting person who committed himself to this task, as he defined it, to free humanity. Yes, it was really mean 13 minutes. In that respect, and regarding other attempts at Hitler's life I also recommend the book - Roger Moorhouse; 'Killing Hitler'...

Looks like a good quality film, but I have to say I've just had my fill of movies about Nazi Germany or set in Nazi Germany...
