Downfall is a fascinating portrait of the last days of Hitler, meted out in meticulous detail that fully creates the disintegrating atmosphere of the end of WWII. Bruno Ganz embodies Hitler's charisma and power and creates an intriguing portrait of a leader on the brink of destruction. The film's historical setting is richly recreated.

The final days Of Nazi Germany and its maniacal leader Adolf Hitler are stunningly told in this unforgettable movie. Even 60 years on from events, there is still a lot of sensitivity regarding the portrayal of Hitler in German cinema and this film earns its fair share of controversy. Blending matter of fact, almost banal everyday occurrences with disturbing and shocking images, Downfall creates a claustrophobic induced aura that hooks the viewer in. Neither condemning nor (heaven forbid) glorifying Hitler, this is a movie, which tells a story about the end of one of modern history's darkest hours. It also offers a bleak and chilling reminder of the destructiveness and chaos of human life.

I'm a sucker for WWII flicks and stuff. It thrills me always to realize what would have happened if Hitler would had win the strike against Russia. For so many years he was unstoppable, but then he met his destiny. The monster is even bigger when Bruno Ganz (masterfully) performs and acts he's mustache off. This film is essential at the level of Pianist or Schindlers list. The downfall of insanity, the rising for hope.
