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

Hopkins says that by portraying grotesque, crumbling and drugged monster like Hitler also turned him into something else. Hopkins even shouted at his then-wife and scared her during filming. See more »
Bormann refers to Gen. Patton's 3rd Division as crossing the Rhine. Patton commanded Third Army, a fact which the German staff would be all too aware of. See more »
This is another one of those inexplicable films that should be out on DVD by now but isn't. There is so much 'dross' being released, yet this minor masterpiece with excellent performances from Hopkins remains locked away! A region 1 release is rumoured, but no date yet. It's been a while since I saw it, but I do remember being very impressed at the time. Another similar 1974 film exists with Alec Guiness playing the Fuhrer; "Hitler, the last ten days". My recollection is that the "Bunker" film had the edge. The Alec Guiness film was spoiled slightly by a series of strange comments from Hitler in his sealed room moments before he and Eva Braun commit suicide (obviously there were no witnesses to record this!). It was as though the film-makers added it in just in case anyone might find themselves admiring the Fuhrer for his resolute position! After the German masterpiece Downfall/ Untergang, it seems crazy not to be able to add this gem of a film to DVD collections crying out for it.........
