Critic Reviews for 13 Minutes (Elser)
Although "13 Minutes" is a period piece, it addresses issues that continue to resonate in society.
[A] gripping, somber German-language drama based on actual events ...
Friedel conveys an awful lot simply with his eyes as Elser, projecting lusty soulfulness in happier times, sorrow over the Nazis' rise to power, and stunned disbelief at his plot's failure.
It puts one in the mind to make a meme: Hitler reacts to Oliver Hirschbiegel's prosaic flashback transitions.
Conspiracy theories surrounded the Elser plot for years, and his political motives have been debated; as scripted here, he acted alone and purely from moral conviction, which Friedel conveys in a passionate, charismatic performance.
Audience Reviews for 13 Minutes (Elser)
The kind of run-of-the-mill biopic that seems like a telefim, with a conventional script that lays every detail out in the open (in case you have any cognitive problem) and a series of irrelevant flashbacks that don't really help us understand the character as well as they should.
