Downfall

The final days of Adolf Hitler

“Oliver Hirschbiegel’s Downfall is a compelling, completely absorbing, and blackly hilarious reconstruction of Hitler’s increasingly deranged final days in the bunker as the Red Army gradually closes in, told from the point of view of der Führer’s personal secretary, whose recollections also formed the basis of the 2002 documentary Blind Spot. Being cooped up for two and a half hours with Adolf, Eva, the ideologically fanatical Goebbels family, and all those crazy Nazis may not be your idea of fun, but bear with me.“As the walls close in, this endgame scenario veers between morbid grandeur and high farce (Adolf and Eva’s pre-suicide civil wedding), and it’s a sombre study in the terminal delusions of the soon-to-be-powerless. Featuring a scenery-chewing powerhouse performance by Bruno Ganz as Hitler, I couldn’t take my eyes off this cocktail of stupefying denial, hilariously paranoid rants, and Third Reich infighting.� – Gavin Smith, Film Comment
