Inside the branches of power of Hitler's Germany
28 April 2001 | by goya-4See all my reviews

Rutger Hauer brilliantly plays the Nazi architect Albert Speer in a made for tv movie based on his memoirs. Being based on Speer's memoirs obviously Speer is presented in a better light than the other nazi heads of power, but the drama is evenly balanced and indeed interesting. 6 of 10
