Trivia

In the scene where Goebbels, Harlan and some other people are watching a movie on Goebbels' 43th birthday, they are watching an actual birthday home movie with the real children of Goebbels. This movie was made a few days before his birthday by Heinz Rühmann, who was invited by Goebbels himself 1940 to his villa in Wannsee near Berlin. Goebbels liked Rühmann and let him playing many movies but Rühmann himself wasn't a Nazi. See more »

Goofs

In the filming scene from "Jew Suess", where Suess is asked not to muss the next mail carriage, the position of the actors in this scene are different from the positions of the characters in the same scene in the original movie. The scene obviously not just a rehearsal recording because the last line in this scene was said by Harlan "Decor change". See more »

Quotes

Werner Krauss: [taking two shrunken heads off his suitcase, is imitating himself and Goebbels, first as himself] Please, please Herr Minister, let me play all jewish minor roles
Werner Krauss: [as Goebbels] You are megalomaniac, Krauss
Werner Krauss: [as himself] No, I'm not, I'm an actor. Please, the role of Rabbi Loew is too small for me.
Werner Krauss: [as Goebbels] You know very well, that I'm against double roles.
Werner Krauss: [as himself] So you have to go without me, good bye.
[normal to Marian and Harlan, who are sitting next to him]
Werner Krauss: It's genius, right?

Jew on that
28 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

This is a very delicate subject and the filmmaker at hand might not have been the best choice. His directing (Moritz B. as Goebbels would have needed some guidance), his poor choices in staging some scenes and other flaws become very apparent.

On the other hand, he is not afraid to go places, that others might not have dared (an intercourse that is so absurd, it's almost funny, if it weren't tragic ... and a scene you will either love or hate). Of course the faux documentary style tries to recreate a feeling of what happened back then. But the fact, that he was just a director for hire, seems to apparent.

He did not really check or confront himself too much with the story. Instead opting on doing what he got from the script (or his interpretation of it). And it's a shame that some powerful scenes such a the one in a tent, were the movie is shown, with reactions, is getting sidetracked and completely dismissed by the next set-up outside the tent, when it seems to be a completely different movie, with no class or style attached to it.

Moretti on the other hand (as most actors), try their best. You cannot fault him (or his "wife" in the movie) for any shortcomings of the end result. With a subject matter like this you could expect a better movie. Some parts are really good and it's ambiguity is still something I cherish (that's why I rated it so "high"). Still there is no constant flow and the mood is all over the place ... same goes for Bleibtreus Goebbels ...
