    Just curious if anybody has seen this movie. It is a couple of years old. I have watched it twice and began to wonder about other people's opinion. It is a satire about Hitler appearing in modern day Germany. It is all in German with English subtitles. I thought it was very funny, but many aspects of it make you really think.

    Since you are a music buff, I found the closing song of the movie on YouTube. It took me a little while to find it. I never even thought about liking a German song, but, I really like it.

    I think it is TERRIFIC!!! Funny as all get out but at the end, gets a little preachy and serious. But like you said, it does make you think - How could a guy like Hitler convince a country to follow him? The movie, albeit fictional, shows the way. Two thumbs up!

    He had Joseph Goebbels who was a hellva prop man, could sell ice to a eskimo, plus having control over all media and I mean all to, read up on Joseph , its interesting.

    I binge watched the series "Hitler's Circle of Evil" which gave history about Hitler himself and the close circle of men that were around him from beginning to end. It was really good and I recommend it if you haven't watched it. It portrayed Goebbels as a kind of recluse and nerdy if I remember correctly.

    I've watched both. Entertaining and informative.


    Just think....... if that Austrian art school would have just accepted him as a student........... let that be a lesson to us all.

    He stayed out of Hitlers way and did the PR, but, had his own agenda
