Monday at the Movies: 13 Minutes [International Film Festival]
In 1939, when Hitler tricked millions of people, one man said no: During Hitler's anniversary speech, a man is arrested on the Swiss border in possession of suspicious objects. Moments later, a bomb explodes in Munich behind the Führer's lectern, killing eight people. The man is Georg Elser, a carpenter from Swabia. He is interrogated by the heads of the Criminal Police and the Gestapo. Elser learns that his attempt failed--that the man he wanted to kill in order to stop the bloodshed of another world war, left 13 MINUTES before the explosion. He is tortured for days until he confesses. He explains how National Socialism slowly metastasized in his home village, and how he and a few other tried to oppose it. And how, finally, he acted. Georg Elser, disparaged as an assassin, is one of history's greatest resistance fighters. In German with English subtitles. Rated R. 114 minutes.
