There had been many films in the past related to the subject of World War II and with this coming in another movie which is Six Minutes to Midnight which is starring Izzard, Judi Dench with other more actors and the film Is directed by Andy Goddard. The plot of the story seems very interesting as the film is not only focused on the war story that is only about history, which we been learning in schools since childhood. Though it is not like that it is way different from the story of war, it isn’t like that the film you can say that the story revolves around another story but it certainly is related to World War II.
Six Minutes To Midnight starts with the story of a teacher at the time when World War II was just in the initial phase all major developments were taking place but actual confrontation didn’t happen till now that is at the time of 1939. There had been many things just apart from the war that we know that had been taking place during that period of 6 years. The war was fought for the nation and by the nations but nobody cared what the people of the nation are going through what kind of hardships.

English teacher goes missing from an Anglo-German private school, this was at the start of World War II in 1939. But, nobody in the school seemed to be bothered by this fact and soon there comes a new teacher in place of that faculty position that is vacant. The new teacher is Miller, who had done with various lessons and had completed quite a few days in the school is now finding something different happening in the school. He founds that ostensible teaching of the Third Reich in the school and also he comes to know that the former teacher in whose vacant position Miller is there currently had been washed off on the beach that is situated near to the school.
The school where Miller was currently teaching was a British school but the things that were taking place inside the school revealed something to him. Miller one day found some proofs that the school had been secretly helping the Nazi’s and just after knowing this rush to the major of the British and things didn’t go as was planned by Miller because a person was chasing Miller while he was heading towards the Colonel to report everything that had been going on in the school but things go wrong for Miller when he is falsely accused of the murder of Colonel.
The Colonel was shot dead by the person who was following Miller and then things in the school become like it, Miller’s vacant position is taken by the person who was following him or more precisely the person who shot Colonel, and then the story grows more interesting but the experience would be spoilt if you get to know everything beforehand, so it’s good that you watch the film first rather than jumping to know the story beforehand. It may also be in the fact that the previous teacher too may have gone missing because he too knew something about the school, everything seems to associate, well for that you need to watch the film.
