Production has wrapped on the dramatic movie based on Alan Judd’s bestselling book. The WWII drama was adapted for the screen by Simon Burke, directed by David Leveaux, and features Christopher Plummer, Eddie Marsan, and Janet McTeer.
The Kaiser’s Last Kiss takes place around the 1940 invasion of Holland which brings the Nazis face to face with their former monarch, Kaiser Wilhelm (Plummer) – exiled to the Netherlands since 1917. In an effort to thwart the Nazis, the Dutch resistance work covertly with Winston Churchill in inserting an agent into the Kaiser’s household. A lethally dangerous love affair ignites between a German officer (Courtney) and a young Jewish Dutch woman (James) with consequences that neither they nor the Kaiser himself could have foreseen. As the Nazis race to identify and eliminate the agent, the threads of history conspire with the recklessness of the heart to dumbfound them.
