Movie Info

Father Henri Kremer (Ulrich Matthes) is a Roman Catholic dissenter from Luxembourg imprisoned at Dachau concentration camp. When Kremer is granted a nine-day furlough by Nazi officer Gebhardt (August Diehl), he becomes entangled in an ethical dilemma. Gebhardt instructs him to convince Luxembourg's bishop to cease all anti-Nazi rhetoric and accept a collaborationist stance. If this happens, Kremer will be released. As the ninth day approaches, Kremer struggles to overcome his moral paralysis.

Audience Reviews for The Ninth Day (Der neunte Tag)

  • Jun 05, 2013
    A fabulous build up to a day when a priest must decide whether or not to be a collaborator for the Nazi regime or to go to death by opposing it. The tension builds towards the eventful day and the choice is not foreshadowed.
