Adolf Hitler wakes up in Berlin...in 2014. After getting his bearings he is discovered by an unemployed TV producer, Fabian Sawatzki. Sawatzki thinks Hitler is some sort of performance artist and takes him around the country, talking to the general population, for a TV piece he has envisaged. Hitler, however, sees this as a chance to regain his popularity and power.Written by
The beginning scene where the camera shows clouds in top down perspective and slowly fades into modern day Berlin is a direct homage to the 1934 Nazi propaganda movie Triumph of the Will (1935) by Leni Riefenstahl. See more »
At the end of his life, Hitler was suffering from the onset of severe Parkinson's disease. He walked with a visible tremble and his hand often would shake uncontrollably. When Hitler arrives in the future, all traces of Parkinson's are gone, although perhaps this was an effect of the time travel itself. See more »
You're a monster.
Am I? Then you have to condemn those who elected this monster. Were they all monsters? No. They were ordinary people, who chose to elect an extraordinary man, and entrust the fate of the country to him. What do you want to do, Sawatski? Ban elections?

"Er ist wieder da": he is back again in English is a MUST SEE. First of all it is a really good insight in how Hitler influenced the German people and finally gained their trust. It is black humor but one of a amazing reality at that time and with a bitter similarity with the social status in Germany and Holland due to the huge flow of asylum seekers. A film to see for the young and the old. and good to see with your children ( like we did) Do'nt be foled by frustrated reviewers who have an opinion without having seen the movie. ( I call this " the Caligula " syndrome ,also one of the most underrated movies of all time: showing the reality of history !!!)
