The 1938 Munich conference was a sort of last-ditch effort among the major powers of pre-WWII Europe to avert a full-blown conflict across the continent, the details of which were fictionalized in Robert Harris’ internationally bestselling 2017 novel Munich. Netflix has just released an adaptation of that novel, packed with sumptuous visuals and a stellar cast including Jeremy Irons as Winston Churchill’s predecessor, Neville Chamberlain. But while Munich — The Edge of Wartells a very specific story about escalation toward one military conflict? The movie’s debut, coincidentally, also comes at another precarious moment on the European continent.

Munichonly just debuted on the streaming service on Friday, January 21, and it’s already one of the most-watched on the platform right now. It’s the #5 Netflix movie in the US as of the time of this writing. It’s also, perhaps, just as noteworthy to acknowledge the backdrop against which this movie has been released. Once again, Western powers are racing to, probably in vain once again, counter the martial ambitions of another European dictator. This time, it’s Russia’s Vladimir Putin, who has now reportedly sent 127,000 troops to the Ukraine border. Eighty-four years on from the events depicted in Munich, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Munich — The Edge of War

“Hoping is waiting for someone else to do it.”

Two friends in 1938 Germany try to avert a war in Christian Schwochow’s MUNICH – THE EDGE OF WAR. Starring Jeremy Irons, George Mackay and Jannis Niewöhner, the film is now on Netflix.

It must be said, meanwhile, that one of the factors arguably working against a movie like Munichis that, unfortunately, we already know how this story turns out. That deflates the high-stakes tension a bit, as stern politicians in oak-paneled rooms ponder how to achieve peace in light of the whole “What will Hitler do?” angle. That doesn’t make the movie any less fascinating to watch, however. Jeremy Irons gives an especially textured performance as Chamberlain. Who, of course, was the British prime minister whose pursuit of peace with Hitler created the vacuum that a cigar-chomping Churchill eventually stepped into.
