Superb stuff
17 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

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.
