Valkyrie: Riding Roughshod Over History?
Luke Turner , January 23rd, 2009 05:31

We've come to expect Hollywood to rewrite history, says Luke Turner. But in the case of Von Stauffenberg, the mono-armed, cycloptic plotter who tried to blow up Hitler, is there even space to do this?


Scene of Battle: The Battle of Stalingrad, World War Two

Behind Enemy Lines: The film tells the harrowing story of a platoon of German soldier's journey to the battle of Stalingrad. Way better than Enemy at the Gates. Jude Law is too pretty to be a soldier.

Trivia: An earlier German film also portrayed Stalingrad but with the far more expressive title Stalingrad: Dogs, Do You Want To Live Forever?
