Trahisons (The Exception) est un film britannique réalisé par David Leveaux sorti en 2016.


L'histoire se déroule au début de la Seconde Guerre mondiale et se concentre sur les dernières années de la vie de l'empereur Guillaume II (Christopher Plummer) qui vit en exil depuis 1918. Wilhelm se retrouve bientôt sous la supervision de Brandt, un capitaine de la Wehrmacht (Jai Courtney) et d'un détachement de soldats allemands. Pendant ce temps, l'entourage du kaiser engage une nouvelle femme de chambre juive (Lily James), Mieke, pour laquelle le capitaine prend un intérêt immédiat. Le décor est planté pour une histoire de subterfuge et d'espionnage, le chef de la gestapo en Hollande demande à Brandt de démasquer une taupe appartenant à la résistance qui s'est infiltrée dans l'entourage de l'empereur pour l'assassiner, alors qu'une visite de Heinrich Himmler (Eddie Marsan), chef des SS, se prépare. Brandt découvre qu'il s'agit de Mieke mais il est secrètement amoureux d'elle.

As the film opens Eichmann has been captured in South America. It is revealed that he escaped there via the "rat line" and with forged papers. Arendt, now a professor in New York, volunteers to write about the trial for The New Yorker and is given the assignment. Observing the trial, she is impressed by how ordinary and mediocre Eichmann appears. She had expected someone scary, a monster, and he does not seem to be that. In a cafe conversation in which the Faust story is raised it is mentioned that Eichmann is not in any way a Mephisto (the devil). Returning to New York, Arendt has massive piles of transcripts to go through. Her husband has a brain aneurysm, almost dying, and causing her further delay. She continues to struggle with how Eichmann rationalized his behavior through platitudes about bureaucratic loyalty, and that he was just doing his job. When her material is finally published, it immediately creates enormous controversy, resulting in angry phone calls and a falling out from her old friend, Hans Jonas.

Victor and Danny met in prison and hatched a plan to kidnap and demand ransom for the only child of a rich family. The film opens with scenes in which they make meticulous preparations to carry out the kidnap. They take their victim, Alice, her head hooded, to a soundproofed room. They cut off her clothing and tie her to a bed with a ball-gag buckled into her mouth. They force her to look at a camera as she is photographed naked. They then dress her in a tracksuit, put a hood on her head and leave her. They bag up both her and their clothes for disposal and Vic sends the pictures to her father as first step towards making the ransom demand. In continuing graphic scenes, they explain to Alice that she needs to sign when she needs the toilet and strip her lower half in order that she use a bed pan whilst still tied up. Neither shows any emotion during her humiliation but Vic, who is dominant, questions Danny's resolve now that the formerly 'hypothetical girl' has become real.
