Diplomacy

The future of Paris in midst of the diplomatic game of high politics
A historical drama that depicts the relationship between Dietrich von Choltitz, the German military governor of occupied Paris, and Swedish consul-general Raoul Nordling.
August 25th, 1944. The Allies enter Paris. 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?

Media reception

The Hollywood Reporter
"This terrifically performed piece is filled with twists, turns and underhanded schemes that show how history sometimes lies in the hands of a few."
Los Angeles Times
"The reason it never ceases to compel is the skill of the actors but also the kind of provocative dialogue that characterizes intellectual combat.“
