ValkyrieIn a country in the grips of evil, in a police state where every move is being watched, in a world where justice and honour have been subverted, a group of men hidden inside the highest reaches of power decide to take action. VALKYRIE, based on the true story of Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg (CRUISE) and the daring and ingenious plot to eliminate one of the most evil tyrants the world has ever known. The film brings to life the story of the men who led the operation to assassinate Hitler. A proud military man, Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg is a loyal officer who serves his country, all the while hoping that someone will find a way to stop Hitler before Europe and Germany are destroyed. Armed with a cunning strategy to use Hitler's own emergency plan – known as Operation Valkyrie – these men plot to assassinate the dictator and overthrow his Nazi government from the inside. Stauffenberg is thrust from being one of many who oppose Hitler to the one who must kill Hitler himself. The film was shot in Germany at various locations where many of the actual events occurred, including the historic Bendlerblock, recreating the atmosphere of urgency and paranoia inside the German resistance.
