The story takes you to Munich, Germany, where Von Gall Sr. is being tortured by a Nazi officer. The Nazis are trying to extract the access codes of several Swiss bank accounts from this man, which were being used to fund the underground resistance to help Jews escape and start over.
A pretty gripping movie with a superb cast! Brutality and sadism, gentleness and innocence, chess in a time of war, I thought the story was extremely amazing! It had me glued to the screen waiting in anticipation on whats going to happen next, there were a lot of heart pinching scenes, and a lot of eye candy from the sets to the actors, it was all well drawn, but maybe they overdid some of the sets?
Thomas Sansgard is one brilliant actor! Ive seen him in Hitler: Rise of Evil (among the list of kiddie and non-kiddie films hes been in) and Im definitely looking forward to watching more of his movies! --- Oh, and one of the villains in this movie is.. tortuously, maddeningly sexy! :P'
