Diplomacy / Oct 27, Oct 31, Nov 1, 2

October 24 - November 9

A new film by Volker Schlondorff (The Tin Drum) . . . 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 barbaric 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 is to 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 thus starts a tension-filled game of cat and mouse as Nordling tries to persuade Choltitz to abandon his plan.

It gives young audiences more to digest than popcorn.”
