An Excellent Film
30 August 2000 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

Well I see people are po'ed because this film doesn't get all preachy about how "Hitler is evil". Well come on, there are countless films that talk about the holocaust and such, this film is unique in that it is trying to explain Hitler from HIS POINT OF VIEW. It is a very interesting film and a must view for any historian interested in the WW2 era. I'm sure many will disagree if it is an accurate portrayal of Hitler or not, but that should be an interesting debate.

Oh yes and Norman Rodway gives one of the best 'one man' acting performances I've ever seen. 8/10
