Anthropoid


Swastika and old-fashioned tram

No No No, I am not talking about Apecranes nor the assessment of female pelvis in this entry...



In October last year in Prague, I happened to encounter the footage, Anthropoid


Official poster-Image from Wiki
When I was in front of Jubilee Synagogue (Jeruzalémská Synagoga in Czech), bizarre scene caught my eyes. The Hakenkreuz flags were everywhere, streaming in the wind... 


My jaw was about to fall off... Well, my first thought was "Is Buddhist temple exhibition taking place in Prague???I finally realized that movie filming was going on when filming crews grabbed my arms and said "You can't cross the street. Hang on here"


The movie is based on the true story of "Operation Anthropoid", the code name for the assassination of SS-Obergruppenführer and General der Polizei Reinhard Heydrich, who is a head of the Reich Main Security Office, RSHA, the combined security services of Nazi Germany and acting Reichsprotektor of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia.



The operation was carried out in Prague on 27 May 1942 after having been prepared by the British Special Operations Executive with the approval of the Czechoslovak government-in-exile


Although only wounded in the attack, Heydrich died of his injuries on 4 June 1942. His death led to a wave of merciless reprisals by German SS troops, including the destruction of villages and the killing of civilians.



The film has its world premiere at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival on the 1st of July, 2016 and will be released on the 12th of August this year by Bleecker Street.

It looks like military alliance between Nazis and Japan. Where is Italian Empire??

Old trams, classic cars, posters written in German decorated the street.

  1. このポスト面白いです。逆にお寺のマークを知らない外国人は、日本にはナチス関連の施設がたくさんあると勘違いするでしょうか。いい場面に居合わせ、ナイスショットがいっぱい。3枚目、俳優さんたち楽しそう。史実に基づく映画はみたい映画です。
