Adolf Hitler wakes up in Berlin...in 2015. After getting his bearings he is discovered by an unemployed TV producer, Fabian Sawatzki.

Hitler, however, sees this as a chance to regain his popularity and power. Written by grantss

Did You Know?


In a pub in Brandenburg Hitler is quoting the poem "Nachtgedanken" (Night thoughts) by German poet Heinrich Heine by 1844. Heine's works were forbidden during the time of Nazi Germany and were burned during the Nazi Book Burning in 1933, also due to Heine's Jewish Roots. See more »


When Hitler sees a Turkish newspaper, he says: "The Ottoman Empire managed to turn the war. I wouldn't have expected such a feat from the Turks!" However, the Ottoman Empire had already collapsed after losing WWI, being replaced by the Republic of Turkey in 1923, who did not even take part in WWII. Hitler is known to have been well aware of this fact, and some scholars even claim that Nazis were highly inspired by Ataturk, leader of the Turkish Revolution that led to the Republic of Turkey.

More impactful than expected
16 December 2016 | by sergi_translateSee all my reviews

I like movies that make me think. Er ist wieder da, was suggested to me as a comedy, and not being particularly fond of comedies, what I got was way more than expected.

The movie treads a sensitive line with sufficient care, but what is most important to me, with plausibility. Even the few places where the script becomes "unreal", in general the coherence and treatment of the insertion of THE character in present society is preserved, and that is for me an enormous value in itself. The probing of current times by the use of this major historical character is remarkably able to become an exercise of philosophy and even introspection.

In my opinion an extremely challenging script becomes here alive by his own merits, and the acting supports this substrate quite solidly.

I laughed, and even if I today would better file it as a tragicomedy, For the sake of our times let's call it a comedy. And I very much hope, from the bottom of my heart that, in the next years to come we can continue to say, that it was so.
