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

Older Czech natives who remembered World War II took part in the filming of crowd scenes with reluctance. They later reported that the sight of so many swastikas and Nazi uniforms made them ill. See more »

Goofs

Several times through out the movie it is mentioned that six million Jews died. Since Germany won WWII in the film, the Nazis would have been able to complete the extermination of Europe's Jews the number of victims would have been approximately 12 million. See more »

Quotes

Charlie Maguire: We'll send a car for you in a couple of hours.
Anna Von Hagen: [gives files] America! Franz says you still have them in America. You didn't do anything about them? All that may change of course, now you have a president who thinks like the Fuhrer does. It was a real problem for me, making a career in Hollywood.
Charlie Maguire: Why?
Anna Von Hagen: Jews. They controlled all the studios, you know - they even tried to keep me out of Broadway. The public wanted me, you see... and then "they" started the war. Ah, Berlin was beautiful before the ...

An interesting "alternative" version of world history
15 May 2005 | by 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").
