I thoroughly enjoyed this film. I thought the emotion conveyed by Bruno Ganz as the worlds most notorious human being was amazing. Seeing him slowly deteriorate into a desperate and psychotic person, while his trusted inner circle began to abandon him was pretty touching.
Perhaps inspiring empathy for Adolf Hitler isn't a good thing, but it isn't what this film sets out to do, merely something that the actors manage to achieve during the three hour masterpiece. Atmospheric and extremely claustrophobic, it is clear to see how degraded the price of human life was during this period.
