About Operation Mincemeat (12A)

In the context of WW2 narratives, the story of Operation Mincemeat is unique. A bizarre and seductive cinematic blend of high-level espionage and ingenious fiction, where the stakes could hardly be higher. Michelle Ashford's script fuses multiple strands and moods: tense, romantic, thrilling, unexpectedly funny, and endlessly surprising. It tells a richly human story of the soldiers we seldom see, who fight a different kind of war in shadows and deception, haunted by the knowledge that certainty and guarantee of success are nowhere to be found.

Trivia

The script for the picture was co-written by Ben Macintyre who is a well-known historian who previously wrote an account of the mission entitled 'Operation Mincemeat: The True Spy Story that Changed the Course of World War II' (2010). The film is based on this book whilst Macintyre also acted as a consultant to the production.
