"...An Emmy winner for Loring Mandel's script and Kenneth Branagh's never-better performance....[Tucci] is also extraordinary..."
World War II was beginning to look impossible to win for the Nazi forces in 1942. The entry of the United States into the war coupled with a depleted military gave Germany virtually no chance to emerge victorious. January 20, 1942, a special meeting was held elite Nazi commanders and government officials. From this meeting, Hitler's "final solution" would result, sealing the fate of six million people.
This HBO feature film is based on the only account of this meeting. Kenneth Branagh won an Emmy for his portrayal of General Reinhard Heydrich and Loren Mandel earned an Emmy for his script work on this chilling portrait of this fateful meeting.
