Nice to see another war movie about the non-violent part of war. I've always been interested in this plan and how it was carried out, and the cast looks good, so I'm interested!

I want to see a movie about the Abwehr. It's no understatement to say that a decent chunk of the Abwehr (including the head of the Abwehr himself, Wilhelm Canaris, and his deputy Hans Oster) consistently worked to undermine the Nazi regime throughout the entirety of WW2, and that it was a crippling blow to Nazi plans. For example, Hitler sent Canaris to try to persuade Franco to join the war on the side of the Axis, and Canaris played this fence sitting act of both telling Franco how great Germany was while also being like "but actually, you really don't want any part of this, best sit this one out," while also fooling Hitler into believing he was doing his damndest to get Franco involved.
