The 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 the first world war from his point of view, and how he became the strongest man in Germany. The movie show 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
All Nazi-themed costumes and props (flags, medallions, pins, tie-tacks) were destroyed after filming wrapped, to prevent any items linked with Nazism from finding their way into the hands of neo-Nazis. See more »
During the segment set in "July 1918" the Lieutenant informs Adolf Hitler that the unit is to be redeployed to the Eastern Front. Russia had already signed a peace treaty with Germany on 3/3/1918 so by this point in the war there was no longer any "Eastern Front". See more »
He's insane. A complete psychotic. He may be a compelling speaker on stage, but in person I could see into his eyes and what I saw was... terrifying.
Gustav von Kahr:
And I intend to shut him down.
With all due respect, Commissar Von Kahr, you need to handle him with care.
Gustav von Kahr:
Don't worry, I will. I know how to deal with Adolf Hitler.

Just imagine the real Hitler, who was a master of propaganda and speech, would have been such a mumbling moron as Carlyle portrayed him in this film.
Nobody would have followed him, not even a desperate, unemployed guy in the 1920s.
This is just a Hollywood cardboard piece of propaganda itself, disguised as "true history".
I pity everyone who actually believed anything from this show. Carlyle and the producers didn't get anything right with this.
Why was Hitler able to win so many people, a whole county for his ideas if we was such a sausage? Why did people follow him to death? By portraying him as such a loser they make their own film totally unbelievable. This film is a mixture of old WW2 propaganda and MTV urban myths about one of the most important persons of the last century. Imagine a film about Churchill where the director only shows him as a drunkard for 90 mins.
This film is a disgrace and I wonder how they could talk an actor like Carlyle into this dreck.
