1945. As the Russian Army closes on Berlin, chaos reigns as the Third Reich crumbles. Hitler rages against his own generals and the German people themselves, unable to accept defeat.

The first German film in 50 years to deal with this period of the war and features an astonishingly humanising performance from Bruno Ganz. Controversially playing him not as the usual caricature but a raging, shouting, spittingly real Hitler This is devastating filmmaking outstandingly put together in every department.


The pace of a thriller, authenticity of a documentary, the action of a blockbuster. . . a masterful achievement
