The true story of the imposture set up by the British secret services, to hide from the Germans their intention to invade Sicily.
After his diptych Indian Palace, John madden is back for Operation Mincemeat, a great military film about WWII, adapted from the eponymous novel by Ben Macintyre. British Oscar winner for Shakespeare in love in 1999 signs a large spy fresco, which tells the incredible true story of the plan fomented by the Army of his Majesty and the MI: 5 …
The year is 1943. The Allies are determined to break Hitler’s hold on occupied Europe and plan a general assault on Sicily; but they are faced with an impossible challenge: to protect their invading force from a potential massacre … It is up to two remarkable intelligence officers, Ewen Montagu (Colin Firth) and Charles Cholmondeley (Matthew Macfadyen), to dream the strategy most inspired and unlikely disinformation of the war – centered on the most unlikely of secret agents: a dead man.
Also with Jason Isaacs and Kelly McDonald, Operation Mincemeat will be released in France on January 5, 2022 at the cinema.
