Quotations from Valkyrie
Valkyrie is a historical dramatic thriller film about a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler during the height of World War II. The movie focuses on the plan "Valkyrie" that was suppose to be carried out by Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg and other various high ranking officials of the Nazi regime. Sadly, as we know, the plan was a failure, but it came extremely close to being a success. Directed by Bryan Singer. Starring Tom Cruise, Bill Nighy, and Carice van Houten.
Valkyrie received slightly positive reviews from critics and was a financial success. The film did cause controversy in Germany due to Tom Cruise's affiliation with Scientology, but after some time, they received permission for filming in specific locations around Germany.
