Product information "Georg Elser - Einer aus Deutschland"
Stories have always interested me. I am curious for new texts, which I try to bring alive in one or the other way, as an actor or director does not matter. (Klaus Maria Brandauer)
The simple cabinet maker Georg Elsner planned the assassination of Adolf Hitler in the Bürgerbräukeller on the 8th of November 1938. For the assassination he built a timed bomb into a pillar near the speakers pult which was during a celebration of the Nazi coup attempt. The assassination did not work out, because Hitler left the celebration ten minutes earlier than Elsner planed. Georg Elsner tried to flee to Switzerland but was caught at the border. Brandauers cinema debut is rich in tension and suspense. (Claus Phillip)
