"Downfall"...AKA "Der Untergang"

I just saw this movie today. It's a frightening realistic movie documenting Hitler's last 12 days and the surrender of Berlin. It's also entirely in German (I speak a little and it had subtitles). The acting is superb, and I recommend that anyone who has any interest in WWII MUST see it. Be prepared to feel really down after it, though. I give it 5 out of 5

I liked it; Hitler really was a bastard.

He really was...the things he said were so dark and frightening. I still don't understand how so many people were staunchly loyal and went with everything he said.

The power of charisma and conviction can enable absolute loyalty, although it is also something that you can find in good people.

I found it interesting how in the movie he talked about not having any compassion because that is a sign of weakness, not caring about german civilians dying, etc. etc. What a psycho.
