In early-20th-century Austria-Hungary, hard work and fierce loyalty to the Empire allowed Alfred Redl (Klaus Maria Brandauer) to rise from his working class roots to a lofty position in Army intelligence. However, the resentments of his higher-born peers would couple with his closeted homosexuality to spur a scandalous end to his story.

Widescreen; Soundtrack: German; Subtitles: English; featuirettes; theatrical trailer. In German with English subtitles.
