Downfall

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.

It is useful to reflect that racism, xenophobia, grandiosity and fear are still with us, and the defeat of one of their manifestations does not inoculate us against others.

Any film that reminds us what our darkest nature looks like has value for that reason alone.

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