The Real "Rise of Evil"...
8 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

This documentary explores the rise to power of an anonymous Austrian painter, gone to war, frustrated by its country's defeat and its social injustice, and by the way of words fuelled by insane megalomania, became a warlord whose ideals would spurn crimes of all sorts, including mass extermination and war...

From archives files from newsreels and mostly Nazi propaganda films, this is an insight of the rise of what was an absolute tyrant and dictator, who ruled with an iron fist, and led to World tragedy, one that will be never forgotten.

Excellent narration by French actor Mathieu Kassovitz, a piece of history to understand that words fuelled by violent actions can lead to War.

Not to be compared to the TV movie "Hitler: the Rise of Evil", which was dramatized, this documentary is the real account, and chilling to the bone for crude images...
