Diplomatie

A FILM BY Volker Schlöndorff


Synopsis

August 25th, 1944. The Allies enter Paris. Warsaw has been destroyed three weeks earlier by the Germans. Shortly before dawn, Dietrich von Choltitz (Niels Arestrup), German military governor of Paris, prepares to execute Adolph Hitler’s orders to blow up the French capital. Bridges and monuments are all rigged to explode. And yet, Paris is not destroyed. For what reasons did von Choltitz refuse to carry out the Fuhrer’s commands, despite his boundless loyalty to the Third Reich? Was it Raoul Nordling (André Dussollier), Swedish consul-general to Paris, who made the General change his mind?
