This is as close to what the notorious Adolf Hitler was like in his last days as you can ever get. Taken from eyewitness accounts not just trudal but also his personal bodyguard in the bunker aswell as others.
The historical accuracy is second to none, as you will see in the exceptional special features. That bunker and everything in it is as close to humanly possible.
You really feel the power he had over the german armed forces, especially when he gets into one of his rages. What can i say Bruno Ganz is so believable as hitler its scary, he should have won the academy award for his role. I've watched and read so much about WW2 history and you can't tell the actor from the character.
Includes moving moments eg: when Mrs Magda Goebbles poisons all her children.
The most amazing thing about this movie is that the whole berlin outside scene's were filmed in a russian city called (back then) Leningrad! In the special scenes you will see how the german crew could not get over the hospitality of the russian people of Leningrad. Amazing considering the over 1 million Leningraders lost in the siege of WW2.
Just shows, time can heal all wounds.
If you want to know what life was like during the battle for berlin, this is as close as you can get without smelling the gun powder.
Five thumbs up way up.
