Storyline

An American historian (Mr Webster) comes to Berlin to visit an old man who claims to be the real Adolf Hitler and to be 103 years old. The Hitler who died in 1945, the old man says, was just one of his six doubles - one for each weekday - while Hitler himself retired into a bunker below the S-Bahn tracks and married a second time. After much deliberation and identity-searching, Mr Webster ends up shooting and killing the self-proclaimed Hitler. Written by Christian Taube <taube@lrz.de>

29 September 2002 | by (Bremn, Germany) – See all my reviews

In a theatrical way Armin Mueller Stahl presents here a pitiful Adolf Hitler. The story is very amusing, ironic and, in the end, tragic. Tragic in the end because of the fact that the viewer feels somehow pity, if not sympathy for the 103 year old Hitler. Throughout the movie the viewer is taken forth and back in believing that he is the real Hitler. The unexpected end pulls the viewer back into the real world to realize the hate and anger the person Hitler is producing.

Great acting, funny stories and the totally absurd characteristic of Hitler make this movie one of Armin Mueller Stahl's best ones. If not taken to seriously, the movie is great entertainment.
