Flawed but deeply moving…
I’ve seen this several times now and I can never watch the end of this movie. My husband and I watched it again last night and I simply broke down and cried for ten minutes. Such waste of young lives… To read the later fates of the characters in the credits was particularly wrenching. Very good performances, foremost of which must be Anton Difring. Beautiful use was made of Prague’s older quarters. Unlike many I didn’t like the music at all; I felt the subject deserved better. One wonders what the widow and daughter of Heinrich thought of the destruction of Lidice and its subsequent reincarnation in the aftermath of the war.
Mix of Thrilling and Tragedy
Operation Daybreak is the World War II movie which adopted from the actual Operation Anthropoid ,occurred in 1942, and some parts are from the novel “Seven Men at Daybreak”. It’s very interesting that this movie filmed use more than 80% of actual event as the screenplay and many things looked very realistic.
I think this movie has 2 parts. First is the thrilling for every viewer in the SOE’s mission to kill General Reinhard Heydrick. (SOE is the British’s Secret Service Organization before they changed to MI6) Everyone can see Heydrick’s notoriously action which made him “the Butcher of Plague” before his assassination. This part can make everyone think about the operation and could judge about what Heydrick’s deserved. Another part is about the tragedy that occurred until the end of the movie.
In my opinion, Operation Daybreak is the very interesting film which everyone who likes in history should see. The most part of the film is inspired by actual story even it is not the documentary. Nevertheless, due to it’s not completely “hero” film, everyone should understand the crew and the circumstance during World War II in order to understand this movie.
At last, if you like history, this is one of your choices, but don’t hope too much about “the beautiful way of the film”.
