Goofs

Near the end of the film after Speer speaks to Adolf Hitler for the first time in the bunker, we see him seeing a stretcher being carried out with a woman's hand sticking out. The woman is obviously Mrs. Goebbels and is of course dead. This is wrong because Mrs. Goebbels died the day after Adolf Hitler. Speer even sees Adolf Hitler again in the film after just seeing Mrs. Goebbels body which he couldn't have. See more »

Hauer's portrayal as Speer is excellent
4 July 2005 | by tram84mvpSee all my reviews

this is a 4 hour mini-series dealing with the life of Hitler's architect Albert Speer, Derek Jacobi does a fine job as Hitler and the film encompasses all 12 years of the 3rd Reich. People interested in the world war 2 years will surely find this movie interesting. I highly recommend this film as it gives the viewer a real inside look at the regime of Hitler and all his cohorts. The whole cast does a good acting job and the viewers get to know the 3rd Reich inner circle members in all their infamous glory. there are a few other movies dealing with this subject but this one is superior to the others. The movie is never dull and can really give the casual person who knows little about the era a sense of what things were like back in 1930's and 40's Germany.
