Storyline

Fictional historical account of what might have happened if Adolf Hitler had won the Second World War. Germany has corralled all European countries into a single state called Germania, and continues fighting against the Soviet Union. It is now 1964 and Germany's war crimes against the Jews have so far been kept a secret. Germany believes that an alliance with the United States would finally beat the Soviet war machine. As his 75th birthday approaches, Hitler wants to talk peace with President Joseph Kennedy. An SS homicide detective and an American journalist stumble into a plot to destroy all evidence of the genocide; evidence that could destroy the peace process with America and evidence that Nazi and SS leaders will stop at nothing to keep hidden.

Trivia

The pompous buildings in post-war Berlin are based on actual plans by Albert Speer, Hitler's favorite architect and secretary of armaments. Among several other landmarks we see a huge dome (the Palace of the People's Forums) a Triumph Arch, an Olympic Stadium and the Reich's Chancellorship. Only the Stadium and the Chancellorship were actually built, but the later was wrecked by bombings and finally looted and demolished by the Red Army. The rest of them were never built, and constructions like the Arch and the Dome were so massive that architects were unsure of their viability, until recent computer-based simulation have stated that Speer's calculations were correct, and had Hitler won the war, Berlin would have pretty much looked as the movie shows.

Goofs

The bus which takes the reporters from the airport into Berlin is far too new. The movie is set in the 1960s, this type of bus first appeared in the late 1970s. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: [closing narration, about Xavier March and Charlie Maguire] I used to wonder why she never got out while she had the chance. But she and my father were the first to see those images of horror. The first to know, and that somehow linked them forever with each other and the victims. So she sat until the Gestapo came for her. Everything had changed. Without the American alliance, Hitler's Reich collapsed. Of course, there are some who say it never happened. Those who look and do not see. The years ...

Hitler showed more mercy to Jews than HBO to Fatherland!
8 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am so glad, that I have read the book first (total master piece, even better than Da Vinci's code, which integrated quite a lot of elements from Fatherland), cause the movie was a total disaster. In first 5 minutes the original story line is changed 4 times! after that I rather stopped counting mistakes. After half an hour I had to shot it down. I just couldn't stand the massacre of Harris's master piece. My advice to those who want to know the story is to read the book before seeing the movie cause there is a big possibility you will lose all your interest in the story if you start with that terrible movie. And missing this story is a sin! And now, can anybody answer me, why Americans always destroy all the good stories, when they turn them into movies?
