Tear Jerker / Valkyrie

  • Stauffenberg's breakdown as it becomes clear that he has failed, Hitler has survived and their plan is falling apart as their erstwhile allies abandon the conspirators and rejoin the Nazis to save themselves.
  • The execution scenes, accompanied by a really powerful melody.
  • Stauffenberg flinching as his comrades are shot.
  • Haeften standing in front of Stauffenberg, shielding him from the firing squad and giving him his few extra seconds of life as a sign of respect and friendship.
  • "I'm thinking of earlier times".
  • How about the fact that the last chance to stop Adolf Hitler has failed and the agony of the European Theater of World War II would continue with the Allies forced to crush Germany the hard way.
