The irony of this date is that it is the 83rd anniversary of the infamous “Peace for Our Time” statement. made by Prime Minister Chamberlain, who believed at the time to have negotiated peace with Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany.

According to author Robert Harris, Munich will shed a much more sympathetic light on Neville Chamberlain:
It’s great to see an actor of Jeremy Irons’ stature play Neville Chamberlain. It will be the first time that a major film has gone beyond the cult of Winston Churchill and attempt to show Chamberlain in a more sympathetic light.
Due to the controversial manner in which Neville Chamberlain resigned as Prime Minister, he has often been the subject of mockery on television and in movies.
