Munich: The Edge of War, directed by Christian Schwochow, is relased on Netflix

Munich:The Edge of War, a new thriller feature directed by Christian Schwochow, is available to watch on Netflix from Friday 21st January.

Based on the bestselling novel Munich by Robert Harris, the pre-war drama follows tense real-life events at the 1938 Munich Conference during which two former friends, now working for opposing governments, become reluctant spies racing to expose a Nazi secret.

The film has had a 4* review in The TimesKevin Maher writes 'Christian Schwochow is on remarkably assured form, creating a credible prewar London and evoking a deep sense of unease in late 1930s Munich... Schwochow cross-cuts between set pieces and high-stakes action with enough handheld intensity to make you forget (or wish you had forgotten) the historical outcome.'

Abigail Cruttenden plays Anne Chamberlain and the rest of the cast includes Jeremy Irons, George MacKay, Jannis Niewohner and Jessica Brown Findlay.
