What’s the plot? Operation Mincemeat?
Operation Minsimet was a military deception conducted by Allied forces during World War II. Its purpose was to disguise the Allied invasion of Sicily in 1943, to plant false documents and letters on a corpse, and to disguise the corpse as a fictitious army captain. The body, along with documents, was released from a submarine off the coast of Spain discovered by Spain and the documents were shared with the Germans, who believed that the main target of the allies would be Greece. The operation proved successful, even Adolf Hitler was deceived by the plan and the Allies did not provide enough obligation to defend Sicily when it was liberated.
The operation was planned and carried out by Evan Montagu (Colin Firth) and Charles Cholmondle (Matthew McFadden). However, it was inspired by The Trout Memo from 1939, published under the name of Admiral John Godfrey, Britain’s director of naval intelligence, but written by Ian Fleming, best known for creating the iconic gentleman spy James Bond. The memo describes 54 ways to lure an enemy or hold them back like a trout.
After the war, Evan Montagu wrote a book about the whole operation entitled The Man Who Never Was. The book was later renamed in 1956 under the same name. Netflix’s adaptation, however, takes writer and historian Ben McIntyre Operation Mincemeat Books as the source material of the film.
Director Operation MincemeatJohn Madden commented:
“In terms of WW2 narration, the story of Operation Minsimit is a bizarre and seductive cinematic mix of unique-high-level espionage and captivating fiction, where parts can rarely be. Michelle Ashford’s script fuses multiple strands and moods: exciting, romantic, thrilling, unexpectedly ridiculous and endlessly amazing. It tells a rich human story of soldiers we rarely see, who fight a different kind of battle between shadows and deception, ghosts by the knowledge that the assurance and guarantee of success is nowhere to be found.
