I liked Downfall or Der Untergang very much. It is a movie about the last days of Hitler and focuses on Berlin and Hitler’s bunker.
Some people have complained that the movie shows the human side of the Nazis. That is true, but I think it makes the movie better. Even though the Nazis were evil, they were still human in many ways and representing them as evil caricatures isn’t exactly correct. To me, the realistic portrayal of Hitler in this movie was convincing without diminishing any of his evil or craziness.
As the focus of the movie is on Hitler’s last days, it doesn’t deal much with his crimes. That is a valid artistic choice as we want to watch a movie and not a lecture or documentary. Even then, Downfall doesn’t lose sight of the fact that the Nazis were bad.
If you do want to learn more about Nazi crimes against humanity (and you should), then read some books about the Holocaust or the Nazi campaigns against the Roma or Slavs or their racist ideology and so on and so forth. This movie would give you an inkling of Hitler’s craziness but not much more.
Overall, it is a great movie. I rate it 9/10.
