  • Critic Reviews
    "Of all the actors who have taken up the dare of playing Adolf Hitler, Bruno Ganz may be the first who has truly nailed him in body, spirit, and gesture."
    Entertainment Weekly

    "[Ganz] tackles the biggest monster of them all with appropriate sobriety and a touch of mischief."
    New York Times

    "[P]owerfully disturbing....The film is painstaking in its re-creation of the fall of Berlin, with captivating camera work, mostly with handheld equipment, and disconcertedly realistic war scenes."
    USA Today

    "This is an impeccable, unflinching film."
    Uncut

    "[T]he reality it confronts is so gripping, we cannot turn away."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[Ganz] succeeds brilliantly with this gift of a role, haunting the mind for days afterwards..."
    Sight and Sound

    Ranked #2 in Uncut's Best Films Of 2005 -- "Claustrophobia and intensity prevail, the performances are frighteningly believable."
