''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.''

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)

" Notes: Eventually, I wasn't disappointed. Indeed, I thought it was really an amazing movie and I would go even further by saying that it is probably the last great war movie in my opinion.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 mag"

“Es interesante abordar el tema de la Segunda Guerra Mundial desde la perspectiva alemana. La cinta es muy interesante desde el punto de vista histórico y filosófico, ya que para variar no es una historia de guerra propiamente dicha, sino que cuenta la anécdota de como se sintieron lo alemanes al saber que habían perdido la guerra.” read more

35 From 4: My Favorite Films From 2004 (35 movies items)

"For many years after World War II, German cinema avoided any kind of depiction of one the most infamous of dictators, Adolf Hitler. The controversy that immediately followed after the 2004 film Downfall finally broke that taboo, shows that even 60 years after the "Big One", the scars of the second war to end all wars are still there and still incredibly sensitive. Centering on the close circle of Hitler's command during the last days of the war, Downfall details the happenings within the Thi"

"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 "

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2017 (315 movies items)

"19.6. Katsoimme Perikadon kolmessa osassa, koska lapsiperheen arki, kiireet ja Skinny Puppy. Aatu elää kuin viimeistä päivää bunkkerissaan, jossa hänestä tehtiin yotube-tähti. Itse elokuvaan olikin sitten ensinnä mainitusta syystä hiukan vaikea päästä sisälle, mutta Hitlerin kuoleman jälkeen leffa muuttui todella, todella ahdistavaksi kuvaukseksi aikakaudesta, jollaista tuskin enää koskaan syntyy uudestaan. Huomasin, että vaimokkeella oli vaikeuksia katsoa kohtausta, jossa Go"

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."
