Anthropoid (Cert 15)

Dir Sean Ellis       Czech Republic/UK/France 2016        120 mins

Cillian Murphy stars in this gripping and intelligent World War II thriller about the Czech Resistance Fighters’ mission to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich, the Reich’s third in command after Hitler and Himmler.

The film is based on the extraordinary but true story of Operation Anthropoid, whose target Heydrich was the main architect behind the Final Solution and the leader of occupying Nazi forces in Czechoslovakia.  Heydrich’s reign of terror prompted self-exiled Czech and Slovak soldiers (Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan) to hatch a top-secret mission that would change the face of Europe forever.  Also stars Toby Jones.
