Deitrich Bonhoeffer was a young German theologian who offered one of the first clear voices of resistance to Adolph Hitler. Bonhoeffer openly challenged his church to stand with the Jews in their time of need, and eventually joined the plot to kill Hitler. Extensive research in the U.S and Europe brings to life this amazing story of moral courage. Extraordinary archival footage is interwoven with interviews with friends, family and students of Bonhoeffer, with historians and theologians, and with the words of Bonheoffer himself, read by Maria Klaus Brandauer.
A touching narrative on the nature of faith. Powerful, disturbing, and shocking. --New York Times
A valuable and complex portrait of a rare individual, who saw the light in a time of spiritual darkness, and had the courage to follow it. --Village Voice
Bonhoeffer shows how extraordinary courage can spring from unlikely sources. An inspiring portrait of one of the great moral heroes of the 20th century. Undeniably poignant and thought-provoking. --Minneapolis Star Tribune

The documentary explores the concept of Christian ethics, and shows how Bonhoeffer was able to reconcile seemingly contradictory beliefs of the sanctity of life and justice - to the point that he was willing to participate in the resistance's attempts to assasinate Hitler.
The documentary uses phenomenal footage of Hitler's reign, interviews with Bonhoeffer's friends, family, and students, and analysis from historians to vividly tell this story. The story has direct relevance to the world we live in today.
If you are interested in an uplifitng account of how God can use one ordinary man to make a difference, then this movie is for you. Or, if you simply want to watch an amazingly well told documentary about an important era in German history (without feeling preached at), then this film also is for you. It certainly makes you think about our current world politics from a fresh point of view.
