Critic Reviews for Diplomacy
Arestrup and Dussollier are mesmerizing as they attack and parry, argue and counterargue. They reminisce about their lives before the war and wax poetic about their families - then engage in battle again.
A little supporting personality could have made the proceedings feel less like a smartly staged character study and more like a wartime drama.
Diplomacy will work for those who appreciate dialogue-based character films in which plot is of secondary importance.
Although we know what happens, Diplomacy keeps up the suspense and pulls off surprises as Choltitz's decision reaches its inevitable ending.
Its minor thrills come not from not knowing what will happen, but from watching the cagey choreography of two acrobatic minds.
