Description
One of the greatest crimes against humanity was perpetrated in just over an hour. One meeting. Six million lives.

By the winter of 1942, Hitler's dream of Aryan supremacy had become a nightmare. His armies could be found freezing and starving on the Eastern front, and America's fighting forces had just entered the war to the West.

On January 20th of that year, 15 officials attended a conference at Wannsee on the outskirts of Berlin. Comprised of mid-ranking SS commanders and a variety of government ministers, the meeting was organized by SS Major Adolf Eichmann, under the direction of the ruthless and efficient Chief of Security Reinhard Heydrich. It was to be a polite conference with food, wine and some debate, but beneath this thin veneer of manners lay an evil intent. By the meeting's close, the fate of six million lives would be decided, and a terrible machine put into operation that would alter the shape of the world.

Conspiracy is based on the only surviving record of that meeting. It would be the blueprint of Hitler's "final solution."

        Given the scenery was simply a dining room, the camera work was exceptional in that it made the viewer appear to be sitting at the table. The dialog was exceptional- given the incredible context.
        Great casting! All characters were believable -which is difficult in a document-drama.

        HBO Films is excellent!

          The actor portrayals in this movie are spot-on. Colin Firth is excellent as is Kenneth Branagh and Stanley Tucci as Eichmann is superb. Please take the time to purchase this movie - historically accurate!

              A very clear picture of how evil can be created under the belief of politics and the common good of the masses. People that do not believe that these evil thing could happen by a cultured and civilized people only need to see this drama.

                          I am a WWII buff and often am annoyed with oversimplification of complex history. This HBO drama shows the political divisions within the Third Reich, the brutal mentality of General Heidrich (played excellently by Kenneth Branagh), and the technocratic efficiency by which they planned the genocide of 6 million jews.

                          The film is laced with some dark humor. I do not know precisely how faithful the dialogue is to the surviving transcript of the Wansee Conference, but the emotive force of the dialogue does justice to the significance of the historical event.

                          Conspiracy is a movie I have watched many times and highly recommend.

                            This is an excellent portrayal of the fear and lunacy that bound tha Nazi party. Remarkable for its accuracy, it is a true representation of how organizations make hard decisions and claim plausible deniability.

                              The emphasis in the gestures, Brannagh's performance is for the Oscar. The wardrobe, the prominent figures,without doubts a movie that will many mosts valued by the future generations. As all the big movies. The director is better that I have seen in my life.
