Downfall (1 Disc Edition) (DVD)
Controversial and award-winning German drama about the final days of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime. Starring Bruno Ganz.
Bruno Ganz plays the German dictator who, as the Russians close in towards Berlin, retreats to his bunker with his fiance Eva Braun (Juliane Khler), his private secretary Traudle Junge (Alexandra Maria Lara), and his propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels (Ulrich Matthes). His mood ranging from violent rage to pessimistic defeat, Hitler attempts to deny the inevitable as the other occupants of the bunker deal with the prospect of their impending death at the hands of the Russians. Goebbels kills his family before committing suicide, while Hitler finally marries Eva Braun in a ceremony that precedes their own suicide by hours. With only Junge surviving, the Red Army closes in and takes the capital.
