    ★★★

    Must surely rank high on the list of all time terrible adaptations of literary work, Jimenez at al eschewing all attempts at interrogating historical fact and the nature of telling stories with non-fiction in favour of a very traditional narrative work told from two perspectives - ostensibly good vs evil but humanised, especially the portrait of Heydrich and his wife - which is all very interesting and well made and looks really quite nice (plus good acting and whatever) but…

    I heart Scott Pilgrim so much. Full stars!
