Downfall

(Der Untergang)
(2004)

Hitler's last days.

The final days of Adolf Hitler are portrayed in this Oscar-nominated war drama, depicted from the vantage point of Hitler’s secretary Traudl Junge. As World War II reaches its end, Soviet Armies look to capitalise on their stranglehold over the remaining Nazi forces. Hitler still tells his people that victory is achievable, but the Fuhrer’s own mental state is waving from strong to catastrophically unstable – as is the decisions of his fellow German leaders.

  • Powerful. Will undoubtedly raise discussion for its humanistic approach to the characters and subject-matter. But as thoughtful entertainment, this is classy upscale fare. Full Review

  • Solid history, fine cinema. Downfall is gripping, moving, and, in the end, profoundly horrifying. Full Review
