Toward the end of the film, Speer looks at a body being carried away on a stretcher with the arm exposed to show that it's Magda Goebbels. This happens after he has talked to Adolf Hitler for the last time. This could not have happened because Magda Goebbels died the day after Adolf Hitler died. See more »

Excellent view of just how "cut-throat" Hitler's inner circle was. I do feel that the film portrays Speer too much like an innocent pawn in Hitler's tragic production on the world stage. He knew what he was doing and who he was working for even though he may have had in inner struggle with it.
