"Sonata for Hitler" is a 10-minute black-and-white documentary movie. Aleksandr Sokurov, one of Russia's most famous directors currently, made this one still pretty early in his career, namely back when he was in his late 20 in the 1970s. Because of the content, however, it took quite a while till this one finally got released. The contents are basically what the title says. We see video recordings of Hitler and hear classical music. We also see people cheering for the Fuehrer and some of his closest political allies here in Germany. However, I am really surprised this was banned as it's basically just a historical documentary. Maybe some mistook the combination of the video and audio for the wrong conclusion that Sokulov considered Hitler's reign a form of art. I am fairly interested in the 3rd Reich and World War II, but this film did not tell me anything new or keep me really interested. Watch a real documentary instead. Not recommended.
