A reassessment of the role Albert Speer played in the Third Reich. Speer, who was ultimately convicted at the Nuremburg trials and served a 20-year prison sentence, was known for designing many of the Third Reich's buildings and for being Hitler's minister for war production.Written by
Who was this man Albert Speer? What did Speer, minister of Armour, know about the cruel and brutal crimes of the Nazis? For which decisions he bearded charge of responsibility? In usual - and usual perfect and brilliant - method of film collage director Heinrich Breloer take a look behind the masks usually the human being Speer every times tried to vanish. In the middle of the plot of these three thrilling, historical very correct episodes (Third Reich, the Nuremberg judgment, the prison in Spandau) Breloer take the (nearly)amicable relationship between Speer and Adolf Hitler, who admires the giant, megalomaniac architectural projects very much. A terrific transformed, careful directed, wonderful acted (especially Sebastian Koch as Speer, Tobias Moretti as Hitler and Dagmar Manzel as Mrs. Speer) historical view, which shows Speer at first not as notary's manipulator but rather as a smart director of the grand delusion of his life. Try to see it, you will not be disappointed. German television of it's best: I give 8 out of 10 stars.
