This is a beautifully photographed, well-written, and originally funny comedy, amidst the beautiful lansdcape in Bavaria (near Hitler´s retreat). Additionally, it features some of Germany´s best actresses, especially Eva Mattes as Magda Goebbels, and Katja Riemann as Eva Braun, in two wonderfully cast roles.
The film was among the most popular in this year´s São Paulo Film Festival, being among the fifteen films or so (out of about 300) to have encore showings the week after the festival closed officially. One might say this film breaks the taboo on Nazi humor as "Life is Beautiful" did for concentration camp comedy. Very enjoyable.
