One of the most terrifying and thrilling stories of World War II, Anthropoid follows two soldiers from the Czech army-in-exile, Josef Gabčík (Cillian Murphy) and Jan Kubiš (Jamie Dornan), who are parachuted into their occupied homeland in December 1941. With limited intelligence and little equipment in a city locked down under Nazi occupation, they must find a way to assassinate Heydrich, the man many saw as Adolf Hitler’s natural successor.
BIFA voters say:
“I was utterly gripped by this from the get go – a well made and compelling thriller. Well directed, well filmed, well acted – and a brilliant score, very atmospheric, and supported the film well throughout.”
