This movie tells a story about very ancient families living among the humans without anyone of them knowing who they really are. Life may be a little hard, but it is about to get a lot ... See full summary »
This meticulously assembled film dissects the Third Reich with an analytical blade, charting Hitler's improbable rise, his mastery of crowd psychology and his consummate skill in exploiting others' weaknesses.
The movie describes the life of Adolf Hitler from childhood to manhood, and how he became so powerful. It describes his poor childhood in Austria, it describes the first world war from his point of view, and how he became the strongest man in Germany. The movie show us how Hitler turned from a poor soldier into the leader of the Nazis, and how he survived the attempts to kill him. It describes his relationship with his mistress Eva Braun, and his decisions and enemies inside Germany and inside the Nazi party.Written by
All Nazi-themed costumes and props (flags, medallions, pins, tie-tacks) were destroyed after filming wrapped, to prevent any items linked with Nazism from finding their way into the hands of neo-Nazis. See more »
Adolf Hitler would never have spit like he did in the movie during speeches at the Muenchen Bierstubl. Despite his atrocities, Hitler was known to have excellent manners and would never have talked and spit up food, as he does during the interview with Fritz Gelich. See more »
He's insane. A complete psychotic. He may be a compelling speaker on stage, but in person I could see into his eyes and what I saw was... terrifying.
Gustav von Kahr:
And I intend to shut him down.
With all due respect, Commissar Von Kahr, you need to handle him with care.
Gustav von Kahr:
Don't worry, I will. I know how to deal with Adolf Hitler.

The movie deals about the rising of Hitler profiling his existence as a child and his youthful . Since the early years until he takes over in Reichtag .
It describes his relationship with his lovers , and his decisions and enemies inside Germany and inside the Nazi party and his rise through the ranks of the National German Workers' Party prior to World War II.
In the Putch of Munich in 1923 he rebelled against the government of the Weimar Republic but didn't achieve it.
After that he was condemned to prison where he writes "Mein Kampf" dooming the Jewish race.
Then he obtains the power being helped by Rudolf Hess, Goebbles, Goring , Ludendorff and Rohm.
The performance by Robert Carlyle is good but overacting, Peter Stormare as Rohm is better . Peter O'Toole as Hinderburg is very good.
Stockard Channing's intervention as Hitler's mother is secondary as well as Jena Malone as Geli, the Fuehrer's first love interest.
The motion picture was professionally directed by Christian Duguay.
It's a movie for whose are amused by history but a little bit boring. Rating : Good, well worth watching.
