This feature length documentary will knock your socks off ... If you have ever wondered how Hitler and his thugs wooed the Germans? Philippe Mora has assembled an incredible body of film footage here and let the material tell the story ... there is no narration, something Philippe does particularly well. He was even able to find Eva Braun's home movies of Hitler, mostly taken at Obersalzburg, and with the help of German lipreaders, bring them to life. Students of history will find it particularly enlightening. It is also horrifying. Most people didn't think Hitler was at all bad. Famous reporter Dick Brinkly singing the praises of Hitler in the mid 30s must be embarrassing.

This legendary documentary on Nazi-era Germany was previously banned for 36 years in Germany. Distributors claimed it was anti-German due to its more humanistic portrayel of Hitler, including excerpts of home movies of Hitler playing with children.

Meanwhile, the film's premiere at Cannes had to be stopped due to fist fights breaking out during the screening. Save for a strange opening animation sequence of a Swastika drifting through space, the film is compiled of archives and home movies. Watch out for the shaming newsreel footage of American radio personality Dirk Brinkley proclaiming himself a "great admirer" of Germany's "great leader."
