This movie describes the life of Adolf Hitler from childhood to manhood, and how he became so powerful. It describes his poor childhood in Austria, it describes World War I from his point of view, and how he became the strongest man in Germany. This movie shows us how Hitler turned from a poor soldier into the leader of the Nazis, and how he survived the attempts to kill him. It describes his relationship with his mistress Eva Braun, and his decisions and enemies inside Germany and inside the Nazi party.Written by
Geli's lines when she is smoking with the driver, just after being told her uncle is "a good man", ("he's a monster... you can't imagine what he asks of me") are Geli Raubal's actual words, taken directly from her journal. Allegedly, Adolf Hitler drew a series of pornographic sketches of her, titled "Miss Raubal in close-ups and angles to which any professional model would decline posing for." See more »

Adolescent TV pap about Adolf has him beating a dog before the first commercial.
This is strictly for those who like their history delivered via TV movies. Addie's childhood is hashed out during the opening credits, and it's obvious from there that anything complicated about his personality is going to be overshadowed in favor of a sophomoric portrait that would be better titled: Hitler, Son of Satan. A tepid TV costume drama about everyone's favorite villain. Carlyle is mediocre in it.
