In 1945, The Third Reich is in its death throes with the Allies relentlessly attacking the capital city of Berlin. Its Fuehrer, Adolf Hitler, retreats into his fortified bunker in Berlin with his senior staff. There, gripped with both delusions of grandeur and despair, Hitler commands a hopeless last stand with resources existing largely in his own mind. While resisting the pleas of rational minions like Albert Speer, basic reality finally comes unavoidable. With that, Hitler and his fanatical fellows prepare for their own end even as their grandiose dreams are becoming a smoking ruin above. Written by

At that point in his career, composer Brad Fiedel started to add more experimental sounds and techniques in his work. The Bunker was largely as an extended improvisation using sounds he created on then-new Prophet-10 synthesizer. See more »
In the film, the stairway between the upper bunker (vorbunker) and the lower bunker (fuhrerbunker) is shown as spiral. All witnesses to the final days in the bunkers say that it was a normal staircase with right angles. See more »
I am someone who loves history and have and always will be fascinated with what went down in World War II especially the last days of Hitlers life. However Anthony Hopkins performance is very laughable I could not take him seriously, when he went into his tirade I could not understand a thing he was saying. The only movie in my honest opinion that deserves praise is Downfall Bruno Gantz performance as Hitler is very believable, his performance gave me goosebumps and made me believe that he was really Hitler and that I actually there witnessing this.
If you want to see a real movie based on Hitlers last moments Downfall is that movie, it is in German which you can not ask for anything more. All performances who have tried to act as Hitler have failed, Bruno Gants is the only actor that needs to play Hitler. Anthony Hopkins performance makes Hitler into a raging, comical maniac where as, Bruno Ganz plays Hitler as delusional, hateful and cruel man -- but also human.
