Inhalt

Colonel Redl

In the early part of the 20th century, Alfred Redl ruthlessly rises from his peasant background to become a high-ranking member of the Imperial Austrian military. But when he is sent to spy on the Russian Empire, his espionage is compromised by his secret double life as a homosexual. As the world perches on the brink of war, Redl finds himself trapped in a web of deception where honor, grandeur, and greed can only be betrayed by one final shocking act of fate.

Word of his homosexuality leaks out and he is blackmailed. To pay off his accuser, Redl is obliged to increase his counter-espionage activities on behalf of the Russians. Finally trapped by his many deceptions, Red is given the option of killing himself to save his honor.
