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 »

Quotes

Ferdinand Marian: Nobody would buy this role from me. My audience doesn't want me to see that way.
Joseph Goebbels: Ah, so your audience doesn't want you to see that way? Well, Who casts you for your rolls, my dear Marian? The audience or me?
Ferdinand Marian: Believe me there are thousands of better actors. I usually play sensualists, symphatic bon vivants.
Joseph Goebbels: So, your Jago was a symphatic bon vivant.

A fascinating film
24 October 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This is a fascinating and gripping film. I heard it was discredited at the Berlin Film Festival, but I cannot understand why. Whoever says it's a bad movie, is some sour critic with a bad taste, and when these are together, they infect one another mutually with their moods (or they think it chic to have this view). Nobody should avoid this film only because of their view of it. Nobody but you yourself knows your taste, and the way in which something enters your mind in the strongest way.

And nobody really knows the details that happened to Ferdinand Marian, the exact words that were said, the exact situations. A historical piece like this is never absolutely correct,the real proceedings are lost to us, and therefore different angles of view are allowed, and should be seen as such. And this one was a very fascinating interpretation, that held me captive until the end. This means especially the view on Goebbels, and I'll never forget the color that Moritz Bleibtreu gave him.
