Trivia

It is coincidence that the original floor tiles from the real Moravec apartment have a design that resembles a Nazi swastika. The design was copied by the art department and used on the floor of the Moravec's set - The tiles can be seen clearly in the scene where Mrs. Moravcová is interrogated by the Gestapo. See more »

The needle in the haystack!
11 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

Of late, I have been fortunate to watch quite a few screenings and new releases. Most have been disappointing and I would not recommend anyone pay money to see them. Some were so bad I would not recommend anyone waste their time if/when it comes out for free on cable. While I have not reviewed any of those (yet), I wanted to give a massive shout out to Anthropoid. It was absolutely fantastic. Very well done. A historical piece based on actual events. An eye opening account of what went on in Czechoslovakia during the period of Nazi rule. Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan were superb! Highly recommend seeing it in theatres.
