Near the end of World War II, Hitler gave an order that bombs be secreted throughout Paris -- especially under its greatest monuments -- so that the entire city would be blown up if the Allies ever arrived to free the city. And not just the city would be destroyed, but probably 1.5 million people. The film is about the Swedish diplomat Raoul Nordling who makes his way to the German military governor General von Choltitz prepared to give the order, as the Allies are on the outskirts of the city, about to entire, and his last-minute efforts to convince the general not to go through with the devastation.
(I don’t want to give away whether the city is blown up or not…)
Here's the trailer.
