Rommel

Synopsis: In November 1943 Hitler moves Rommel and his Army Group B headquarters to Normandy. The task is the defense of the French coast against the long-anticipated Allied invasion. In Normandy, Rommel notices the incomplete state of the defensive fortifications, the slow pace of constructing the Atlantic Wall, and the lack of preparedness of the defending units mostly comprised of poorly-trained conscripts. Appalled by this Rommel urges his troops to hasten the pace of the Atlantic Wall construction and he begs the German High Command to place more veteran battle-hardened divisions under his command. He especially wishes to have panzer divisions and SS divisions at his disposal for a powerful counter-attack against Allied landings. Hitler refuses to release the vital panzer divisions to Rommel's command and to make matters worse, Rommel gets wind of a possible assassination plot against Hitler.

"WE ARE ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR OBEDIENCE!"

HANNAH AREND THIS FILM COVERS THE FINAL SEVEN MONTHS

OF FIELD MARSHAL ERWIN ROMMEL'S LIFE

Herrlingen near Ulm

October 14th, 1944

I'll get it.

Heil Hitler!

We are to be announced.

The Field Marshal is expecting us.

- Your coats?

- We will not be staying long.

- Will you take us to the General Field Marshal?

- Of course.

Heil Hitler.

- General.

- Field Marshal.

Madam.

- I hope you will stay for lunch.

- No, thank you.

This is an official visit.

Can I ask you to let us meet in private

with the Field Marshal?

Come.

I'll call if we need anything.

Aldinger, unpack the files on Normandy.

Are you still looking for a scapegoat ...

for the collapse of the Western Front?

General-Field Marshal, you are accused of being involved

with the assassination attempt on the Fuhrer.

What?

"THE GERMAN WEEKLY REVIEW"

The desert fox.

The victor of El Agheila ...

the hero of Tobruk, and

conqueror of North Africa.

General-Field Marshal Rommel

is inspecting the Atlantic.

From the North Cape to the Pyrenees ...

runs the world's largest

and most modern fortifications.

Numerous Wehrmacht divisions, with hundreds

of thousands of hardened soldiers ...

on the Western Front stand by ...

to beat the expected

invasion of the enemy.

These are the soldiers who are protecting

the freedom and culture of Europe.

They have the latest weapons.

And this is their commander.

Experienced by many battles ...

awaiting calmly, and confidently, for the big confrontation.

Thanks to Rommel,

Germany can sleep peacefully.

Thank you, Marshal. We'll now

come up for close-ups.

Very well, if you postpone

the invasion for a week.

Field Marshal, the

adjutant of the Fuhrer's.

I need your support.

German officers who were

captured at Stalingrad ...

sent our command letters.

- They call for the fighting to stop.

- That Stalin himself, has wrote.

Unfortunately not. It is certain that

the letters are not forgeries.

- Have you also gotten them?

- No, otherwise I would have torn them up.

Now as the battle hardens, we

need to give the Fuhrer the assurance...

that this betrayal is an incident, and

his field marshals are loyal to him.

- The Fuhrer knows I'm faithful to him.

- Enemy planes!

Aldinger, give me those.

They have not seen us yet.

Daniel, drive to the forest.

They have detected us.

- Do you prefer standing?

- Daniel, hit the gas.

Faster.

Do you see what our problem is?

With no German planes in sight.

We are easy prey.

Stop.

Over there. Forward. Forget it,

you'll never hit him.

Over there, hurry!

Damn.

Anyone shot?

Obersalzberg - March 15th 1944.

We express on behalf of

the entire armed forces ...

our unswerving loyalty to the Fuhrer...

and National Socialism.

We will do everything to ensure ...

that each soldier will fight fanatically ...

for the national-socialist future of our people.

My aide was impressed

with the Atlantic Wall.

I am looking forward to your report.

These recordings were made two

weeks ago in Plymouth.

The enemy is preparing for

a major landing operation.

They bring to the English Channel coast

at least fifty divisions altogether.

- This should only take a few more weeks.

- If it continues.

They are doing a lot of training

on air landings.

It stands to reason that the

landings will take place.

I am even looking forward to it.

Where do you think they will try to land?

Probably here at Calais, or Normandy.

Both peninsulas are ideally

suited for a beachhead.

And how will the enemy attack?

First they'll bombarded our positions.
