''Many mistakes have been made. Be ruthless. Life doesn't forgive weakness. This so-called humanity is religious drivel. Compassion is an eternal sin. To feel compassion for the weak is a betrayal of nature. The strong can only triumph if the weak are exterminated.''

Traudl Junge, the final secretary for Adolf Hitler, tells of the Nazi dictator's final days in his Berlin bunker at t... read more

I'm baffled. Listal users have given this only a 7.7 average?? Did you guys even see this movie, or are you just rating it average because its a film about Hitler? This movie deals with the horror of the Nazi regime and takes place during the final days in Berlin, as Hitler is still defiant and insane and still thinks victory is possible. This movie is better made, more shocking, and sends a m... read more

"The war is lost... But if you think that I'll leave Berlin for that, you are sadly mistaken. I'd prefer to put a bullet in my head."

It has been about half an hour since I finished watching Downfall and the effect of the movie is not remotely close to wearing off. The film is emotional, heart-wrenching, brilliant and engrossing! I don't think words can do proper justice to describi... read more

Description: In April of 1945, Germany stands at the brink of defeat with the Russian Army closing in from the east and the Allied Expeditionary Force attacking from the west. In Berlin, capital of the Third Reich, Adolf Hitler proclaims that Germany will still achieve victory and orders his Generals and advisers to fight to the last man. "Downfall" explores these final days of the Reich, where senior German leaders (such as Himmler and Goring) began defecting from their beloved Fuhrer, in an effort to save their own lives, while still others (Joseph Goebbels) pledge to die with Hitler. Hitler, himself, degenerates into a paranoid ... (more)

Because I Was Curious, Dammit! Part 5 (10 movies items)

"Quite interesting! The acting is great and the story is compelling. One thing that makes this film very interesting is that it shows Hitler as being human. Evil yes, but still very human, as opposed to a comic book supervillain."

"Jan 14th A very good war film without a focus on the scenes of war. The bombing of Berlin thunders throughout the entire movie never giving you a feeling of safety as we are bunkered down with a increasingly deranged Fuhrer. Bruno Ganz's portrayal of Hitler is a masterclass of acting where subtly and nuance is very much key along with the explosive outburst Hitler is known for.The voice, walk and Parkinson's shake of the hand give off the embodiment of the man himself. I also particularly "
