Overview

Set within a world where Hitler and his closest cadre of followers survived, this speculative psychodrama attempts to explore the dark, twisted mind of the mad ruler as he converses with Eva Braun, Hermann Goering, Josef Goebbels, and Sigmund Freud. It is a decidedly minimalist film set in a secret subterranean bunker where Hitler spends endless hours watching films of his best years flicker over his blueprints for the new Berlin. Though he lost the war, Hitler still believes himself successful in becoming an immortal figure. His conversations add insight to his grand schemes, his obsession with blondes, and his moral justification for genocide. At Freud's prompting, Hitler also looks into his own neurosis and fears.

I have numerous films of hitler, the genocide, and WWII. But this semi autobiography of Adolph Hitler is great if you want to get into the mind of the man at the end in his bunker in Berlin. At times its actually comical, and the ending is a good one, because we all know how it turns out. Throughout the movie he points the finger and blames everybody but himself for the satanic deeds that were carried out, while talking to and marching at his own film clips . It kind of makes the viewer feel vindicated that he went a little luny. .
