Based on real events, this is the story of an unsung hero, Franz Jägerstätter, who refused to fight for the Nazis in World War II. When the Austrian peasant farmer is faced with the threat of execution for treason, it is his unwavering faith and his love for his wife Fani and children that keep his spirit alive.
"Malick draws a critical distinction between faith and religion, calling out the failing of the latter - a human institution that's as fallible and corruptible as any individual."--Variety
"It's at once a linear, almost classically structured drama and an exploratory, intensely romantic work of art."--Los Angeles Times
"Malick does succeed, to some degree, on his own terms; he attempts to give some (stylised) sense of this man's inner life: his emotional and spiritual architecture."--Guardian (UK)
