Beautifully shot by James Wong Howe and tightly scripted by Brecht and Lang, this Noir-like espionage thriller is set in occupied Czechoslovakia and revolves around the successful plot by the Czech resistance to assassinate Deputy Reich-Protector of Bohemia and Moravia “Hangman” Reinhard Heydrich, and the hunt by the Gestapo to track down the killers.

Fabulous release with great extras - especially the Pena commentary! This is the definitive release and a must-own for Fritz Lang fans and all cinema fans. Absolutely recommended!
