This movie tells a story about very ancient families living among the humans without anyone of them knowing who they really are. Life may be a little hard, but it is about to get a lot ... See full summary »
The movie describes the life of Adolf Hitler from childhood to manhood, and how he became so powerful. It describes his poor childhood in Austria, it describes the first world war from his point of view, and how he became the strongest man in Germany. The movie show us how Hitler turned from a poor soldier into the leader of the Nazis, and how he survived the attempts to kill him. It describes his relationship with his mistress Eva Braun, and his decisions and enemies inside Germany and inside the Nazi party. Written by
Geli's lines when she is smoking with the driver, just after being told her uncle is "a good man", ("he's a monster... you can't imagine what he asks of me") are Geli Raubal's actual words, taken directly from her journal. Allegedly, Hitler drew a series of pornographic sketches of her, entitled "Miss Raubel in close-ups and angles to which any professional model would decline posing for." See more »

Just imagine the real Hitler, who was a master of propaganda and speech, would have been such a mumbling moron as Carlyle portrayed him in this film.
Nobody would have followed him, not even a desperate, unemployed guy in the 1920s.
This is just a Hollywood cardboard piece of propaganda itself, disguised as "true history".
I pity everyone who actually believed anything from this show. Carlyle and the producers didn't get anything right with this.
Why was Hitler able to win so many people, a whole county for his ideas if we was such a sausage? Why did people follow him to death? By portraying him as such a loser they make their own film totally unbelievable. This film is a mixture of old WW2 propaganda and MTV urban myths about one of the most important persons of the last century. Imagine a film about Churchill where the director only shows him as a drunkard for 90 mins.
This film is a disgrace and I wonder how they could talk an actor like Carlyle into this dreck.
