DOWNFALL (2004)




Director:
Oliver Hirschbiegel

Writer:
Bernd Eichinger
Joachim Fest

Starring:
Bruno Ganz
Alexandra Maria Lara

Downfall is the most historically correct Nazi movie made to date. This movie is beautifully directed and grips the viewers from the very start. Bruno Ganz is simply stunning as Hitler. Never before has an actor done justice to the role the way Ganz has. The script is aptly paced and layered with heart wrenching moments that make you look back and ponder at the sheer devotion some people had to the Nazi ideology. Don’t miss this one.
