There have been many films in the past related to the subject of World War II and with this coming in other films namely Six Minutes to Midnight starring Izzard, Judi Dench with other actors and a film directed by Andy Goddard. The storyline seems very interesting because this film does not only focus on the war story which is only about the history that we learned in school since childhood. Even though it is not much different from a war story, it is not like a film where it can be said that the story revolves around another story but it must have something to do with World War II.
Six Minutes To Midnight begins with the story of a teacher during World War II only at the initial stage all major developments were taking place but the actual confrontation did not occur until now, namely in 1939.There has been a lot going on besides the war that we know has happened. during that 6 year period. The war was fought for the nation and by the nations but no one cared what the people of that nation were going through what kind of hardships.
