Christopher Plummer

This is the main reason to see this picture, an old-timer at the top of his game at the ripe old age of 87. Acting skill and impeccable timing still at its best as he enters the character of Kaiser Wilhelm hoping to make a comeback as the ruler of his beloved homeland. He gets scant help from the two principals, Lily James and Jai Courtney, and you find yourself waiting for Plummer's next appearance.

The story which has been recounted in other reviews is good and is basically a love story between James and Courtney. There is little action in this character study, but mention must be made of Eddie Marsan, who gives a hypnotic and creepy performance as Heinrich Himmler, Hitler's Gestapo Chief. His portrayal is chilling and repulsive and he is an arresting presence on screen (no pun intended). "The Exception" is interesting and absorbing - especially when Plummer is front and center.

A semi-fictional account of the last days of Kaiser Wilhelm II

Though this movie is not based entirely on factual events much of this movie is based on true historical data on the last days of German Emperor Kaiser Wilhelm II. The house in Doorn, Holland is accurate as is other historical events such as the Nazi troops stationed at his manor.

For students of World War I or German history this movie is a must see.

Unlike Hitler, the Kaiser did have morals and religious views that he held until his death despite being largely responsible for unleashing WWI.

Delightful war fluff, well acted!

I'm giving this an "8" simply for the fine acting and commanding presence of Christopher Plummer (I keep wanting to say "Sir Christopher Plummer") as the aged but sprightly and opinionated Kaiser Wilhelm II. I'm torn between calling this the most enjoyable silly film, or the silliest enjoyable film, I've seen in a while, but I found it captivating, even though it's almost certainly sheer fiction regarding any historical accuracy. Although I relished the early and frequent appearance of nudity and rampant sex, what I really wanted more of was extra screen time for the Kaiser's extensive wardrobe of military and imperial uniforms. Notable acting props also to Janet McTeer as the Kaiser's consort, and to Eddie Marsan as a glum, coldly business-like Heinrich Himmler.
