"Downfall provoca uma sensação de medo, já no começo, durante e também depois. É fácil nos flagrarmos sentindo um pouco de piedade por Hitler, depois de assistirmos essa obra. Com tamanho estudo que foi feito antes de filmá-lo, o filme ganha insuperável nível de credibilidade. Cada cena encontra seu amparo histórico com base em múltiplos relatos. E mesmo assim, o filme sofre com duras críticas por parte de humanistas que argumentam que a obra teria a "intenção de minorizar o horror"

Downfall rises to the challenge

“I saw this movie on the shelf in my local library and thought it looked interesting. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. This is one of the best movies I have watched that deal with WWII. It takes you into the last days of Hitler's reign and lets you experience his downfall.

I watched the behind the scenes and interviews with the actors on the DVD after watching the movie. I wanted to see how they made this movie and what they were thinking. The extra feature was almost as interesting as the movie. Some of the actors had concerns because of the subject matter and others took on the challenge of such a controversial subject. I think all of them took it on as a personal project that they wanted to get right and make sure the story was told well. They described making the sets a” read more

"30.7.2009, DVD Todella realistinen, itse Hitlerinkin persoona on todennäköisesti monipuolisin ruudulla tähän mennessä nähty, josta täytyy kyllä kiittää suureksi osaksi Bruno Ganzin upeaa suoritusta. Paljon kohtauksista tapahtuu maanalaisessa bunkkerissa valkotaustaisten seinien edessä useasti vielä käsivaralta kuvattuna, sillä saadaan luotua jopa klaustrofobista tunnelmaa, unohtamatta myöskään näyttää itse sotaa käytännössä. Musiikki on, kuten elokuvakin, erittäin tunne"

"PLOT: Traudl Junge (Lara), the final secretary for Adolf Hitler (Ganz), tells of the Nazi dictator's final days in his Berlin bunker at the end of WWII. Also known by its foreign title of Der Undertang, this brilliant production places us into Hitler's bunker during his final days. It depicts Hitler as a human being, but never asks us to empathise with him. Bruno Ganz's performance is utterly perfect and chillingly believable, generating a screen persona of utter dread and intimidation. The f"

Der Untergang.

“''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 the end of WWII.

Bruno Ganz: Adolf Hitler

Der Untergang(2004) has historical valour, a controversial rendition and a powerful insight into the High Command of the National Socialist party during 1945.

The story of the last ten days of Adolf Hitler and his Nazi regime are seen through the eyes of a young woman and other close personnel in his employ; this is historical dra” read more

"09.11. Erittäin hieno kuvaus Hitleristä ja kansalaissosialismin kaatumisesta. Tässä Hitler ei ole niin armoton tappaja kuin historiankirjoissa annetaan ymmärtää. Paha hän tietenkin on, mutta silti ihminen. En voi kyllä sanoa olleeni surullinen hänen puolestaan. SPOILEREITA! Oliver Hirschbiegel kuvaa hyvin synkästi viimeisiä päiviä bunkkerissa. Välillä on jopa sen verran ahdistava tunnelma, että pahaa tekee. Varsinkin kohtauksessa, jossa Magda Goebbels tappaa lapsensa. Myönnä"

Movie diary - 2009 (158 movies items)

"9.11 Yksi suurimmista elokuvan kehuista menee tietysti Bruno Gantzin suuntaan, jonka normaalia ihmismäisempi Hitler menee auttamatta tämän vuosikymmenen kovimpiin suorituksiin. Hitleristä siis tehdään nimenomaan ihmismäisempi, ei suinkaan mitään kivan kaverin kuvaa. Muutenkin kuin Hitlerin osalta filmi onnistuu ja se onkin, toisin kuin luulin, enemmänkin elokuva saksan kaatumisesta ja epätoivosta (joka erityisesti Hitlerin itsemurhan jälkeen, loppu pulituntisessa saadaan tuntumaan i"

" ''You must be on stage when the curtain falls.'' Downfall is a long film which could of been edited slightly, but makes up for with great fashions of the times, set pieces and a reasonable score. Also this is history being told honestly and in a truthful non-glorifying manner,yet in an also non-demeaning way either too. Features graphic, violent and horrific scenes obviously. One scene that especially disturbed me was in the bunker where a mother, sticks a certain kind of cyanide pill into h"

Amazing...incredible...brilliant!

“"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 describing this amazing production.

Downfall follows the last days of Adolf Hitler (Ganz) who retreated underground into his bunker. The story is told through the eyes of Hitler's personal secretary (Lara). In April of 1945 the Russian forces were closing in on Berlin, and each day brings them even closer. As the Russians tighten their grip on the Nazis and continue their invasion, Hitler and his cl” read more
