Just see the pictures! Mute the audio.
10 June 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

And besides this the first part of the movie is just the same we saw 1000 times. But after it we see some home uncommon home videos from Hitler's private life. It's an interesting part of the movie.

Just interesting, because we can see, that Adolf Hitler was not a monster or something like this, and allows seeing us some real footage. 60 years after the war, it is worth to see something, which is not just 100% war propaganda. (Only 80% is war propaganda first of all the audio).

We see some home movies, which show Hitler and his wife's life. It's worth a look for those wanting a different take in a Hitler biography.
