Der Untergang
22 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

"The last ten days" was dwarfed by another recent movie dealing with the same subject.This latter movie ,however ,owes a good deal to the Italian/German effort which was made 35 years ago and which holds up very well,thanks to Alec Guiness's sensational performance which easily equals that of Bruno Ganz .Ganz was more credible only because he used his first language: German speaking English,it does not always ring true .Historians often write that the 1973 effort was often historically accurate.

Filmed in color (in the bunker) or in bleak black and white in Berlin in ruin: pictures of destruction,of death and of terror ,with snatches of "Das Lied der Deutschen" as a pathetic dirge.Inside the bunker,a man who still believes he is something like a messiah ,and in front of his "apostles", he seems to play the part of a martyr.Outside the walls ,soldier boys are fighting -one of them even gets a laughable medal- "Hitler:the last ten days" is a movie to remember.
