"As the Allies march toward Paris in the summer of 1944, Hitler gives orders that the French capital should not fall into enemy hands, or if it does, then 'only as a field of rubble'. The person assigned to carry out this act is Wehrmacht commander of Greater Paris, General Dietrich von Choltitz, who already has mines planted on the Eiffel Tower, in the Louvre and Notre Dame and on the bridges over the Seine. Nothing should be left as a reminder of the city's former glory. However, at dawn on 25 August, Swedish Consul General Raoul Nordling steals into German headquarters through a secret underground tunnel and there starts a tension-filled game of cat and mouse as Nordling tries to persuade Choltitz to abandon his plan.

An interesting and tense historical drama based on the stage play. The dialogue is well written and draws you in, making you wonder how you would react if placed in such an impossible situation. Even though ultimately you know how things will turn out, the journey there is interesting and challenging. The use of historical footage is a good touch and adds to the story. This film would appeal to fans of history, World War Two and lovers of all things French.
