The character Michael Witzigmann, the host of the comedy show "Krass Alter", is the German version of the character "Ali Wizgür" who was hosting the same show in the original book. However in the book he was a Turkish host of the show, which lead to bigger disagreements between him and Hitler. See more »
In the movie Hitler seems very surprised when he sees a television set and calls television "a great possibility for propaganda". However a television set shouldn't be new to him, as in 1935 Nazi Germany had the own television station "Fernsehsender Paul Nipkow", which was one of the first regular television stations in the world, broadcasting regular daily program for a few hours, including the Nazi Newsreels and Nazi Party movies. However in this movie he might be impressing his disgust, how this medium is used nowadays and about the content of the broadcasting content these days, also as mentioned later at his performance on the TV show.

Those parliamentarians all put the whole money in their own pockets. I wonder that millions of people like you here don't stand up with torches und pitchforks in front of those parlamatarian barrel joints: 'What are you doing with our money?'
But the German himself is not a revolutioner.

In the very start the movie seems so innocent and a little silly. The colors are all bright. The humor though is really entertaining and i like that the Germans can joke about this topic themselves. As the movie goes on we see a lot of footage of ordinary Germans saluting Hitler and complaining about the immigrants, it connects really good with the time we live in. The movie gets more and more serious, and the main character finds out it's the real Hitler. I think the well made transition from being all innocent and humorous describes Nazi Germany. No one thought it would go this far. Really touched me even though i've seen quite a lot of movies about Nazi Germany. 9/10
