Well made but dry...
16 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fascinating and disturbing especially in it's parable like comparison of Hitler's rise and fall with the old germanic folktale of Reynard the Fox. M.Dietrich's voice/narration is at times haunting and the use of photos and woodcuts is visually stimulating. The film almost seems as if it's geared towards children which only highlights the grim horrors it depicts. In today's world of our own country engaging in criminal wars of conquest in the middle east and our govt. being run by illegitimately elected "officials", our own Reichstag fire (9-11) the patriot act and the fraudulent "war on terror" it seems we've learned nothing from watching films like this.
