13 Minutes

13 minutes is not enough carpenter George Alzero to change the course of world history. 8 November 1939 in Munich beer "of Burgerbraukeller", where Hitler every year on the anniversary of the "Beer hall putsch" spoke to veterans of the National socialist workers party of Germany, Elser mounted improvised explosive device with a clockwork mechanism in the column, which often established the podium to the leader. As a result of the explosion 8 people were killed and 63 wounded. However, Hitler among the victims was not. Führer, this time limiting himself to a brief greeting to the audience, left the room for seven minutes before the explosion, as he was to return to Berlin. The film reconstructed the socio-political context of the time, as well as events that happened with George Alteram.

On the eve of 8 November 1939 the village carpenter and a staunch pacifist George Elser (Christian Friedel) hid in the wall of the hall in Munich a homemade bomb with a clockwork mechanism, which had to work on the next day in the time of Hitler's speech, killing the Fuhrer and changing the course of history. But unfortunately, Hitler ended his speech on 13 minutes earlier. However, Elizer finds out about the already in the Gestapo, after being arrested from the border with Switzerland. It will go to torture, and to somehow distance myself from delivered MUK Elser will try to remember a peaceful life full of unhappy love for Elsa (Catherine Suttler) married to the other. Threatening with punishment over her, the Gestapo will force George to confess and tell how and why Alter decided to plan the assassination, but after the recognition he believes that any carpenter managed to own.

One of the main villains of the last century, though mentioned in the title of the film, which willfully gave him a domestic distributors, in the picture has not shown is present indirectly. Hitler saved only by the fact that he left the place where spoke to 13 minutes before the explosion. With this, for example, connected that English distributors also decided to change the original name and called the picture "13 Minutes".

The film is based on the real story of the German-fascist George Elisara, but it little known in Germany, where the memory of this is commemorated with monuments and memorial plaques that are installed in places had to his life. Such local fame seems strange, futile and to some extent unfair. The film is a deserves attention not only a clear humanistic and anti-war overtones, but and amazing acting, a hauntingly embodied on the screen the transformation of little man into person with a capital letter in spite of that the original plan was defeated.

Early winter of 1939, the policy of Europe lined up either of Hitler or against him. Germany and its allies, obsessed with thirst for revenge rasigatale a new world war. Could the story to end 8. November 1939 by using the usual carpenter George Alzero (in the original "Blow up Hitler" so and is called "Alter")? Question — rhetorical — for the history, not have the subjunctive mood. Question about as a simple carpenter in a European history of the twentieth century.

The Director of "Blow up Hitler" Oliver Hirshbigel managed to remove pedantic-impartial picture about how far from policy Swabian burgher became a fighter against the fascist regime. In person Alizera there anything terrorists, arranged the assassination of monarchs, bureaucrats and generals. George Elser German is precise, practical and pragmatic in achieving his goal. But nails to make these people of course it is impossible.

Elser — not a hero of the comics, Hirshbigel shows its usual restless and sinful man. After making an unsuccessful undermine of Elzer feels not hero a murderer of innocent people, so all of the tortures of this carpenter, the Nazis lead them to a standstill. Image Altera — not the image of a romantic hero-a lone, struggling with fascism, it is the image of a man who understands what Germany after Hitler and the Nazis to power went on the way all-devouring Moloch. To stop the growing power of the Beast, tear it down Hitler's head — that is the main task so calculated to detail bomb Altera.

In "Blow up Hitler's" great attention to detail. Of this historical, the fact, drama can be seen recreated in the details of the provincial life of Germany between the two world wars. Cute German town, the political confrontation between the national socialists and Communists in the beer in the beginning of the 30's, the hunt for the German Communists and concentration camps, not the moral life of George Elisara, sozialstaatliche with a married Frau. Half of the film are lengthy flashbacks to the past life Alizera that accurately clarify the growing desire of the hero to deal with Hitler.

"Blow up Hitler" gives the answer about how were if such a great hero George Elser. Yes, Elser was a hero, if the order to its physical destruction in Dachau was given the end of the war. The Gestapo went to the investigation impasse wonder how without the greatest of courage, one man tried to stand on the path of European collapse. It is remarkable that in "Blow up Hitler" shows live, without grams of bronze, man, a patriot of Germany and fighter fascism. Thank you for film the story, Herr Hirshbigel.

Hirshbigel I was familiar "Experiment" and"the Bunker". And if the last thought-through movie, "Experiment" memorial is up to date. So it was interesting to get acquainted with the new work of the Director. Not might say that expectations were met, but and strong disappointment I have not experienced. In any case, the cognitive interest is satisfied: it is attempted Hitler was me is unknown.

So, 8. November 1939 in Munich beer "of Burgerbraukeller" where Hitler addressed the party members in honor of the anniversary of the "beer hall putsch", was a blast. The calculations of carpenter George Elisara, Hitler was this time to be on the podium. However, due to the bad weather the Fuhrer had to shorten my statement and the explosion occurred have his no. Killed 8 man, but the one against whom it was placed, survived. If Hitler stayed only on 13 minutes history of mankind could go on different way. How different would it from known to us, it is impossible to say. One can only speculate and argue about the ratio of the subjective and objective, but to check such theories on practice man is not given. Not going to me, but I will say a little bit about artistic side.

The film is constructed as a roll of two layers of time, the boundary between them was the attempt. That for the events "after", then there is nothing unexpected, except that "their" müller is not like "our".

But the time covering the Nazis came to power and further steps setting to strengthen his regime, are shown as not very convincing. We see the main stages of development of the tragedy in a — peaceful burgher life, and even the confrontation between the Communists and the Nazis and the Communists is quite calm, but gradually the degree of controversy is increased and it ends with the complete defeat of the Communists. It is seen as the atmosphere the country Browns, thickens, loses its life-giving oxygen, and the number of enemies of the regime and the list of reprehensible acts is growing. On this soil grows a simple carpenter George Elisara the belief that to prevent the destruction of the country can only the physical removal of Hitler. So here I thought the atmosphere of the transfer is not managed — like the facts presented, and rise them turned out. This is probably not quite correct, but I compare impressions "Blow up Hitler" and from the novel by Heinrich Boll's "Billiards at half past nine", and the comparison turns out in favor of the book. Yeah and her early work "Experiment" to Hirshbigel managed to create tension in almost all the course of action here there are dropped frames.

But it is my impression is that not mean in front of us — fail failed. Just wanted more and, on my opinion, the Director was able to do this material is more strong film. But and informative side has its own weight, on the statement which I finish.
