Valkyrie (2008)

Drama, History, Thriller |.

Valkyrie is a thriller film directed and co-produced by Bryan Singer and written by Christopher McQuarrie and Nathan Alexander. The film is set in Nazi Germany during World War II and depicts the 20 July plot in 1944 by German army officers to assassinate Adolf Hitler and to use the Operation Valkyrie national emergency plan to take control of the country. The film was released by American studio United Artists and stars Tom Cruise as Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, one of the key plotters.

Cruise’s casting caused controversy among German politicians and members of the von Stauffenberg family due to the actor’s practice of Scientology, which is viewed with suspicion in Germany. Because of this, the filmmakers initially had difficulty setting up filming locations in Germany, but they were later given access to locations such as Berlin’s historic Bendlerblock. German newspapers and filmmakers supported the film and its intention to spread global awareness of von Stauffenberg’s plot.

During World War II, Wehrmacht Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg is stationed in Tunisia, where he becomes increasingly disillusioned with the future of Germany under Hitler’s tyranny. His battalion comes under attack by P-40 fighter-bombers of the No. 3 Squadron RAAF, Desert Air Force.[6] Stauffenberg is severely injured in the air raid and is evacuated home to Nazi Germany. While recuperating, he is recruited by General Olbricht into the German Resistance, which includes General Ludwig Beck, Dr. Carl Goerdeler, and Erwin von Witzleben.

Stauffenberg proposes using Operation Valkyrie, which involves the deployment of the Reserve Army in a national emergency, as a means to take control of the country. The plotters redraft the plan’s orders to dismantle the Nazi regime after assassinating Hitler.
