My review of Downfall ( Untergang, Der )

So this movie didn't win a Oscar for Bruno Ganz spectacular performance or didn't win for best foreign language film, man f**k the Oscars.

The movie is about a group of young women to Wolf's Lair, Hitler's headquarters in Eastern Prussia. They are candidates for the post of personal secretary to the Fuehrer. Among them is 22-year-old Traudl Junge, a fresh-faced girl from Munich. Traudl is chosen for the job and she is overcome with joy at the thought of serving beside her Fuehrer. BERLIN, APRIL 20, 1945: Hitler has retreated to a bunker system under the German Chancellery. Traudl Junge is asleep in her room, deep beneath the ground. She is awakened by tremors from artillery fire. The enemy is getting closer. Charting the last 10 days of Hitler's life, from his 56th birthday on April 20...

"Downfall" by Yojimbo

Based on true life memoirs of people who were actually there, this starkly gripping depiction of the last days of the third reich can hardly be described as an enjoyable experience. The german people are suffering terrible hardship as the attacking Russian forces reach Berlin while Hitler's cowardly henchmen are attempting to make their escape or plotting the murder/suicides of themselves and their families when faced with the consequences of their monstrous actions. Lynch mobs roam the streets dispensing "justice" against suspected traitors (who in Hitler's deranged eyes seemed to include virtually everyone) and ill-equipped professional german soldiers are ordered to fight to the death in the face of certain defeat. The entire cast of the film are superb, but it is Bruno Ganz's remarkab...

Downfall (Untergang, Der) review

An effectively poignant epic war flick about Adolf Hitler’s life in 1945 where the Russians invade Berlin. Hitler (Bruno Ganz) hires Traudl Humps (Alexandra Maria Lara) to be one of his personal secretaries. Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler (Ulrich Noethen) and his SS adjutant Hermann Fegelein (Thomas Kretschmann) persuades Hitler to leave before Berlin falls. Albert Speer, an architect, informs Hitler about a secret regarding his orders while Eva Braun (Juliane Köhler) gets married to Adolf Hitler.

The screenplay, effects and realism was exceptional. A few lines from the movie: Lady –“Life will go on.” Traudl – “It’s all so unreal.” Albert – “Think about it. The children have a right to a future.” Hitler - “They get what they deserve.” “Life doesn’t forgive weakness.” “No mercy...
