Trivia

After President Kennedy cancels his meeting with Hitler and drives away, a very quick three second shot reveals a tall silver haired man, wearing a gray SS uniform, standing on a VIP platform next to several German generals. This man is intended to be Reinhard Heydrich who, in Fatherland's version of the future, became the Reichsfuhrer-SS after Heinrich Himmler. See more »

An interesting "alternative" version of world history
15 May 2005 | by (Bergen, Norway) – See all my reviews

First of all, I haven't read the book. That means I can't compare it with the movie, if anyone is interested in that. The story here is quite interesting. The movie takes place about 20 years after World War II, a war won by Germany. That means many differences from what really happened:

  • All Europe is one single country, Germania (I think)


  • Germania is still at war with the Soviet Union


  • No one really knows about the extermination of the Jews. The official
story is that they were deported to Ukraine.

  • The celebration of Hitler's 75th birthday is soon about to take
place. The American President is going to make him a visit.

This makes the background for what happens in this movie. A man is found dead, and the investigator gets a mystery to solve that grows bigger as he digs up information.

The movie is quite good, just take into consideration that it's a bit low budget. Remember, it's a TV-movie.

(Something totally different: It was funny seeing a poster of "The Beatles" called "Die Beatles").
