The Kaiser lives in a castle in the Netherlands, and following the invasion, the German 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. A local SS officer informs Brandt that there is a British agent passing information from a nearby village which is being investigated. Mieke is an informant who reports to a pastor in town about what’s happening inside the Kaiser’s home. When Heinrich Himmler (Eddie Marsan), head of the SS, decides to come for an unexpected visit with a large platoon of SS men, Brandt is forced to choose between following the Nazi party line and following his heart.
Wilhelm’s wife discovers that Mieke and Brandt are having an affair and brings it to Wilhelm’s attention, expecting Wilhelm to dismiss Mieke and discipline Brandt. However, Wilhelm supports the love that they had for each other and on a couple of occasions had spoken to Mieke about a woman that he had loved before he had gotten married. Brandt suspects Mieke keeps a gun hidden in her room because of the gun oil he smells. When the time comes to have the house searched before Himmler’s arrival, Brandt himself searches Mieke’s room. Mieke’s intention, once she hears of Himmler’s scheduled arrival, is to assassinate Himmler in vengeance for the murders of her father and her husband by the Gestapo. Himmler meets with the SS officer and Captain Brandt, telling them that Hitler wants to invite Wilhelm back to Berlin. This is a trap meant to expose and eradicate those who support the restoration of the monarchy. Brandt passes the information along to Wilhelm. Free online streaming The Exception (2016).
