[imdb_movie_detail title=”Anthropoid” detail=”plot”]
First things first, this is not a fun film. It is grim and dark and tense. It is well worth a watch.
Anthrooid tells the story of the attempt to assassinate X by Czech resistance fighters, parachuted in by the Czech government-in-exile from Britain. But the country they left is not the one they have returned to. The Nazis have imposed a strict, harsh rule. Murder and torture seems almost the norm. Noone can trust anyone else, when you have a family to protect you might do anything to try to save them.
It is a really well told, well acted film. You feel tense watching it.
I knew nothing of Czechoslovakia’s history during WWII, and certainly nothing about this assassination attempt. So despite the fact that this is history I didn’t know how things were going to end.
If you guessed not well then you’d be right. I don’t think that’s a spoiler, and I won’t go in to any more specifics, but suffice to say that the men and women who made up the resistance did incredible things. and they shouldn’t be forgotten.
