Re: Ashdoc's mainstream english movie thread

^^ This in an iconic movie, especially for those fascinated by Aircrafts.. fighter jets.. I visit the air show in Dayton, Ohio almost every year.. they do a recreation of the Tora Tora Tora.

I feel blessed to be in this part of Ohio, close to where history was written.. birthplace of aviation.. and some super exhibits worth watching in person.

Downfall ( 2004 )



This german movie recreates on screen the last days of Adolf Hitler and his nazi Germany and is partially based on the account of his personal secretary Traudi Junge , who was present in his underground bunker during those days . The Russians are already on the borders of the city and throughout the movie we hear constant shelling by russian artillery , the shells of which fall near the bunker making deafening noises and temporarily interfering with electricity and making the lights go out briefly .

Hitler at first refuses to give up and refuses pleas to be evacuated to south Germany . He makes plans to move armies to protect the city , but his generals are only too aware that such armies that exist are too hard pressed fighting on other fronts and cannot come to the relief of the city . When Hitler is informed of this , he goes into mad rages and raves and rants against his generals . The acting by Bruno Ganz as Hitler is most superb at this point and many of these scenes have become famous on youtube .

As the end is near , many of the nazis are openly dancing and drinking as they feel they might be dead within days . Women dance half naked with their breasts hanging out and even Hitler's girlfriend joins the fun , dancing with men and taking Junge out to smoke . Junge finds all this unreal . On the other hand Hitler decides that the german people don't deserve to survive and orders total destruction of his own country . But Albert Speer the minister in charge of this flatly refuses as he feels that the german people should survive .

The most heartless scene of the movie is that of the wife of minister of propaganda Joseph Goebbels killing her own 6 children by cyanide . She is a rabid nazi and if nazi germany goes down then she does not wish to live . The couple shoots themselves later . Before that Hitler and Eva Braun get married and then kill themselves . Their bodies are set on fire by gasoline . His closest men have already begun to betray him preceding this . Hitler has given orders to shoot them all . The SS physician who had done deadly experiments on bodies of jewish people also has to shoot himself as he will be severely punished if caught . One last task given to Junge is to type Hitler's last will and testament in which he rants against international jewry .

The movie also tells the story of a boy roughly aged 13 , who has been forced to fight the russians as germany has already committed all it's adult men to the fight . He destroys two tanks and Hitler gives medal to him . As mayhem strikes with russians conquering Berlin he joins Junge to flee on bicycle . The war is over .

The movie authentically portrays the situation in Berlin during those days and the atmosphere is recreated . Hitler's mad ruthlessness is really brought out . Photography and acting and background music is good .

Verdict---Good .

Four stars out of five .

Re: Ashdoc's mainstream english movie thread

4 stars! wow....

I always wonder how do we know whats authentic. for example Goebbels' wife killing her children, is that because of her belief in Nazism or more practical view that Goebbels children will have wretched lives not worth living, all because their father was a monster...

Re: Ashdoc's mainstream english movie thread

Downfall is mentioned in the Netflix thread too. I watched it first time when my house mate in Londonistan took a month's trial of Netflix (in those days discs only) and caught up on all critically appreciated movies.
Other ones i remember were 'Being John Malkovich' and 'Cinema Paradiso'. Docji, you could possibly catch up on those 2 too, if you have not already done so.
