Diplomacy - Movie

Recommended Posts

The movie Diplomacy (Diplomatie) was part of the French Film Festival showing currently in Australia, and a group of us friends went to see it today.   I can thoroughly recommend it, especially for seeing something historical put to film with much intensity and tension, and mostly set in one a hotel room.  It tells the story of how Paris very nearly was bombed just before the German retreat in Aug 1944, and one diplomat's appeal to the German Commandant to stop such lunacy.

The director, Mr. Schlöndorff, said that “I became fascinated by this idea that once upon a time diplomacy was a powerful tool either to prevent wars or to end wars, and that there are not that many diplomats around anymore, not even in France.”


That's because there are many more madmen around now than just Hitler.
