A young girl becomes the great love of the Nazi leader's life. It spans the years between 1929 and 1945, and focuses on Hitler's obsessive relationship with his niece Geli Raubal (Elaine Cassidy), which eventually led to the girl's suicide, then goes on to tell the story of how Eva Braun (Christine Tremarco) became his wife.

I'd always considered Alec Guiness' portrayal of Hitler as the definitive one. This is as good or possibly even better. Ken Stott (never heard of him before)has caught Hitler perfectly...the gestures...the unblinking, ice cold eyes...the speaking style. He is the highlight of the film --- a masterful performance --- but everything else is excellent too. They seem to have got the uniforms and the trappings right (although Heinrich Hoffman's camera looks a little too modern for 1928.) Hitler is a difficult character to capture. But in this film it was especially difficult because in addition to the strutting "fuehrer" we also see a very different emotional side of the man. My one small criticism is that the 1928 Hitler looks too old.
