Trivia:
In March 2003 while shooting the scenes in Prague on Wenceslas Square, near the National Museum, the movie crew had to put some vehicles in the background to hide candles and flowers laid on a pavement in commemoration of Zdenek Adamec, who committed suicide by self-immolation as a political protest several days before the shooting had begun. Exactly in the same place, exactly in the same way and exactly with the same purpose Jan Palach put the end to his life 34 years earlier.See more »

Nobody would have followed *this* Hitler, 8 June 2007
Author: wittmann73 from Guinea-Bissau

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.
