"The Exception" 2016 Yet Another Sexy Nazi Movie

In my book Bieganski: The  Brute Polak Stereotype I address the question of how the West apportions guilt for the Holocaust, and for all hate. I argue that Polish Catholic peasants are targeted by the West in a way that Nazis are not, for complicated reasons. Please read the book to discover more. 

One of the features of this Bieganski phenomenon is sexy Nazi movies. I've talked about other sexy Nazi movies on this blog. You can see a sampling here.

"The Exception" stars Lily James, a curvaceous young woman who has no reservations about taking off her clothing and simulating sex in various positions. Her waist is tiny, her boobs are firm, and her butt is like two pears. It also stars Jai Courtney, who appears fully naked, head to foot. Yes, the whole package. Seeing his private parts did not enhance the movie for me. It took me right out of the movie. My reaction was, "Oh, my, is that his ___? Yes, yes it is. Boy. Full frontal male nudity. That's not something you see in many films."

The plot: the female walks into a room with a man she's never met before. He orders, "Take off your clothes."

She immediately does, lifting her dress over her head. Unlike any woman I've ever met, she has nothing on under her dress. No slip, no bra, no underpants, nothing. She immediately bends over a table. He immediately begins to penetrate her from behind.

The movie is described as "romantic."

He's a Nazi. He marches about in jodhpurs and knee high leather boots. Somehow we don't see him removing the boots before sex. At least not in the first half hour. I had to stop watching. There is only so much I can do for Poland. 

Oh, did I mention that he is a Nazi? And guess what she is. You got it. Jewish. Didn't you know that WW II was just one big German-Jewish orgy? Yes, I want to vomit, too.

He's a good guy. A great guy. A great, sexy Nazi.

You will alert me, will you not, when anyone produces a movie about sexy Polish Catholic peasants.

Rotten Tomatoes likes it. Here's their summary: 

A riveting World War II thriller that is filled with espionage and romance in equal measure, The Exception follows German soldier Stefan Brandt (Jai Courtney) as he goes on a mission to investigate exiled German Monarch Kaiser Wilhelm II (Christopher Plummer). The Kaiser lives in a secluded mansion in The Netherlands, and as Germany is taking over Holland, the country's authorities are concerned that Dutch spies may be watching the Kaiser. As Brandt begins to infiltrate the Kaiser's life in search of clues, he finds himself drawn into an unexpected and passionate romance with Mieke (Lily James), one of the Kaiser's maids whom Brandt soon discovers is secretly Jewish. When Heinrich Himmler (Eddie Marsan), Head of the SS, decides to come for an unexpected visit with a large platoon of Nazis in tow, the stage is set for a breathtaking showdown, as secrets are revealed, allegiances are tested, and Brandt is forced to make the ultimate choice between honoring his country and following his heart.


  1. I'm not posting a post that was submitted that blames Jews for turning Germany into "Sodom."

  2. Romantic!!! Yes, that is pretty much Hollywood's version of romantic these days. Thanks for the warning, and I will not be watching the movie

    And I too will not be holding my breath while waiting for a movie that anything positive to say about the Polish working class.

    This reminds me that when Hollywood made their version of the breaking of the Engima Code, not only did Poles get no credit, but wasn't the Polish character actually a Nazi spy?

    You couldn't make it up really.

    But much as I appreciate your reviews Danusha, do you want to let the current product of Hollywood into your brain? Everything we take in makes and strengthens connections. And so much of it seems like pure poison to me.
