Trivia

American Television debut for Rutger Hauer. Hauer would five years later appear in another made for TV World War II film, Escape from Sobibor (1987). See more »

Goofs

Near the end of the film after Speer speaks to Adolf Hitler for the first time in the bunker, we see him seeing a stretcher being carried out with a woman's hand sticking out. The woman is obviously Mrs. Goebbels and is of course dead. This is wrong because Mrs. Goebbels died the day after Adolf Hitler. Speer even sees Adolf Hitler again in the film after just seeing Mrs. Goebbels body which he couldn't have. See more »

Pretty good, but...
6 February 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an adaptation of Albert Speer's autobiography by the same name. The story itself is, of course, told from one point of view, Speer's. However, it is a riveting story overall. But I didn't think that Rutger Hauer had his heart in this one. His performance just seemed a bit off and he, unfortunately, was the star, playing Albert Speer. I thought that Derek Jacobi did a wonderful job as Adolph Hitler and he even sort of looked like him. The story is a pretty strong one, and the film holds up pretty well even given Hauer's somewhat lame acting. The remainder of the cast, which includes Sir John Gielgud, Blythe Danner, Randy Quaid, Elke Sommer and Ian Holm, all do a pretty good job and the film is overall fairly enjoyable. However, as I mentioned, it is told from only one viewpoint. A good film but not a great one.
