The End Of Insanity

“I'll admit that I first heard of this movie from the Downfall parodies on YouTube, although (naturally) the real movie is not at all like the absurdist nonsense and false-subtitles-comedy of internet meme. It is a first-class production, and very dark.

It is the story of a vindictive dictator detached from reality, alternatively retreating into fantasies of impossible victories, or else ruthlessly ordering the execution of those subordinates he thinks have "failed" him. It is the story of a confused, cowardly and criminal high command that cannot think for itself, and of soldiers who would rather shoot themselves than surrender--not a few, perhaps, because they know they have already compromised themselves by committting unforgiveable crimes. It is the story of followers and fan” read more

Aprakadabra's Movie Diary - 2011 (403 movies items)

"Watched: 21.8 ------- Hieno ja todentuntuinen draama Kolmannen Valtakunnan viimeisistä hetkistä ennen sen tuhoutuimista. Kiinnosti katsoa lähinnä sen takia koska tässä perehdytään aika paljon Aatun viimehetkiin. Fuhreriä näyttelevä Bruno Ganz on kuin ilmetty Hitler, toki kiitos kuuluu myös maskeerauspuolelle, mutta suurin tekijä on ollut itse Ganz. Voinkin nyt sanoa että kyseessä on kaikkien aikojen paras roolisuoritus."

"Directed by: Oliver Hirschbiegel! Main cast: Bruno Ganz, Alexandria Maria, Corinna Harfouch & Ulrich Matthes! Stars out of 10: 9.8 Stars! You must leave Berlin! After watching countless parodies (which included a lame FIFA parody) of the famous scene where Hitler lashes out on everyone, i decided to download this movie and see what's the hype all about! With Bruno Ganz in the lead and followed by an impressive supporting cast, this film very well could be the Lawrence Of Arabia or Schindle"

"Oliver Hirschbiegel I think for the first time Der Fuehrer may not be spinning in his grave. He would've been rather impressed by this powerful and bold movie and by Bruno Ganz's near-to-perfect performance "I should've had them killed like Stalin did" After watching countless parodies (which included a lame FIFA parody) of the famous scene where Hitler lashes out on everyone, i decided to download this movie and see what's the hype all about!

"Original Title: 'Der Untergang' Directed by: Oliver Hirschbiegel With: Bruno Ganz, Alexandra Maria Lara Plot: Traudl Junge, the final secretary for Adolf Hitler, tells of the Nazi dictator's final days in his Berlin bunker at the end of WWII. Note: I believe it is the last great war movie. It is that good. A fascinating story, a very good directing and, of course, an impressive perfomance by Bruno Ganz. An great achievement and a must see. "

"8th of May, DVD Onnistunut kuvaus Hitlerin viimeisistä päivistä. Bruno Ganz sopii hyvin rooliinsa ja eläytyy kunnioitettavasti diktaattorin rooliinsa. Hitlerin kuolinbunkkeri on onnistuttu luomaan sopivan ankeaksi ja saa katsojan olon ahdistuneeksi ja epämukavaksi. Hitleriä on tuskin koskaan nähty aiemmin elokuvassa ja tässä hänen läsnäolonsa saa paremman kosketuspinnan Saksan toisen maailmansodan tilanteeseen, kuin tusinassa muita sotaelokuvia. "

"Watched 1.5 DVD Hyvä elokuva Natsi-Saksan ja Hitlerin viimeisistä päivistä. Tunnelma on alusta loppuun saakka lohduton ja synkkä, jota korostavat miljöön tympeät värit. Tästä osa-alueeltaan Perikato muistuttaa Kaurismäen elokuvia, mutta siinä missä Kaurismäen leffoissa on aina toivonkipinä, Perikadossa voi vaan odotella pahinta. Ja siinä onkin Perikadon pieni ongelma: ratkaisu tihenee jatkuvasti, mutta juoni ei siltikään tunnu kehittyvän oikein mihinkään kuin nykäyksit"

"Bruno Ganz Taking on the role of one of history’s most despised figures is no small task, and few actors have done it as well as Bruno Ganz’s turn at Adolf Hitler in Downfall. More often than not, actors fall into caricature when playing a figure as infamous as Hitler, who has been documented in more published biographies than Jesus. Downfall contains its focus to the last days of the Third Reich, in the claustrophobic environs of the Bunker and the bombed out surrounding landscape of the Wi"

“A great movie, that has one of its greatest points in its really accurate historical reconstruction.

Good performances by the actors, in particular by Bruno Ganz.

“The latest film by Oliver Hirschbiegel (The Experiment) roused a storm of reactions, long before the promotion. The NAA yes, a film about Hitler the man, a German director, in a country that Nazism is still an open wound can only be a de facto challenge. Despite the difficulty of the task, however, the Hirschbiegel managed to make an amazing movie that nails the audience for 150 minutes. The visualization of almost ntokymanteristiki Berlin mercilessly besieged of leadership collapses and insane, residents sent like lambs to slaughter give the film a dynamic that we long to see the big screen. For two hours we witnessed the horror of war who returned to haunt the sponsors. The intransigence of the generals, the bombing of the city, the suicide of Hitler presented in fragments, creating a wh” read more

A great movie

“Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I wasn't disappointed. Indeed, I thought it was really amazing and I would go even further by saying that it is probably the last great war movie in my opinion. Yeah, it is that good. I remember, after watching it, I discussed it with my wife and she argued that the makers could have never known how the whole thing exactly happened. Personally, I think it is totally irrelevant though but it still seemed pretty convincing in my opinion. Basically, it is a fascinating study giving us the magnitude of the sheer madness of those guys. 70 years later, it remains difficult to comprehend that literally millions of people believed this guy and his ideology. That's also the other great thing about thi” read more
