Storyline

This war drama film is a German-Austrian project in black-and-white and released in 1955. It was produced by the Austrian film company Cosmopol-Film GmbH. The film depicts the last days of the war, especially the last ten days in Hitler's life and the overall atmosphere in his Berlin bunker in April 1945. The film starts with young German Army captain Wüst making his way among the rubble of Berlin's buildings toward Hitler's bunker. Out of a group of four men, only captain Wüst and a sergeant make it alive into the bunker. They are on a desperate mission to see Hitler and request urgent reinforcements for their commander, General Busse, who's in charge of the northern Kurland Army defending the Wriezen area. Despite several attempts by captain Wüst to personally see Hitler, he is stonewalled by the commanding generals. For the next ten days, Wüst will remain in Hitler's bunker, as a liaison officer between Hitler's headquarters and general Busse. He will witness the final days of the ... Written by nufs68

A true "totentanz"
5 May 2005 | by tils4See all my reviews

Made only ten years after the actual events, and set in the Bunker under the Reichstag, Pabst's film is wholly gripping. It reeks of sulfurous death awaiting the perpetrators of world war. Haven't seen this in over three decades, but it remains strong in my visual and emotional memory. The characters seem to be waiting to be walled up in their cave. Searing bit of dialog between two Generals: "Does God exist?" "If He did, we wouldn't." Shame this is not more readily available for exhibition or purchase because it would be interesting to view and compare this film with the documentary about Traudl Junge, "Im Toten Winkel" {aka "Blind Spot: Hitler's Secretary") and "Downfall" with Bruno Ganz.
