DOwnfall - Hitler movie

Watched it a while ago. Very well made film based on information from a couple of different books. Gives an interesting perpective on events from inside Hitlers bunker from an insiders point of view. Another plus point was the fact that it was made in Germany and untouched by Hollywood.

On More4 last night. Mesmerising, fantastic, horrific film.

 

Anyone else seen it?

Not all great books make great films, but if you liked Downfall you really should read "Inside Hitlers Bunker" (Joachim Fest), as this was the book behind the film...so to speak.

Brilliant film, very intriguing..

 

That ganz guy really convinced as Hitler

 

The way Himmler was trying to get himself out of his hole was good and Fegelein running off to the nearest brothel to live out his days was the way to go..

 

Goebbels and his wife were nuts..

 

The basic German civilian must've been living in terror of the Russians coming. They were a 100% ruthless war machine bent on revenge. Not saying the Wehrmacht wasn't either though..

Saw it last night on More4 (the repeat) and what a cracking film it was. So absorbing.

 

Ganz was only nominated for an oscar? Who beat him? Because it would've taken a special performance to beat that show he put on.

 

Phenomenal.
