There are so many excellent reviews of this on here - perhaps I am just redundant. I liked it so much though that I felt compelled to review it. I didn't like the ending, and agree with some of the critical reviews that a pretty German woman in an SS uniform is simply allowed to walk through hundreds of Soviet soldiers seems so totally out of character with that army, not just in Berlin, but in a hundred other places and a dozen other cities, even in the city of one of their allies (Mukden, China). Obviously, that must be the way Junge told the story, but whether she is hiding some brutality so horrible in her memory that she cant bring it out, or whether she just sugar coated it for book sales and that she actually never walked through a group of Soviet soldiers - none of us can know. It is simply unbelievable to me. Having said that, I am not going to back away from the overall excellence of the movie. Some have been critical of portraying Hitler as having some bit of humanity. Well, one way monsters succeed as monsters is to show enough humanity to those close to them to entice total, cult devotion. I felt that showing his extreme swings between being kind to a secretary, charming to his lover, and nice to children exactly captured the personality of one who could have had the support of so many, basically decent, but so "sucked into him". His rage, his self righteous anger against Jews, making any kind of question of him personally a crime against the nation, etc. was the monster side of him. I felt that it was done extremely well by the actor who portrayed him. Yet, his soft voice, offering his hand to a secretary to ease her nervousness, and a very deep affection for Eva Braun brought out the human side very well. I did not object to that portrayal of Hitler as having some ordinary human kindness because - the only way we allow humans to become monsters, is that we see the human side of them until it is too late. Goebbels also was shown to have a human side - but again, I think this is necessary for us to understand. Humans that are monsters, appear to be human until they do the things that only monsters do. Imagine, mothers out there, please imagine, Magda Goebbels, putting sedatives in the mouths of her children, so that her husband and Hitler's doctors could kill them in their sleep with cyanide. I know, this is another falsehood in the movie - the mother did not directly kill her children, but she did incapacitate them so that her husband could force Hitler's personal doctor to end their lives. I want the personal side of these people portrayed, that of Hitler, the adulation and love of Eva Braun, the total devotion of Hitler's inner circle until the bitter end - and even then Goebbels stayed with him, the devoted mother who insisted on making her children perfect, but killed them when her Fuhrer faded. Yes. I want the humanity of all of the evil people in the Third Reich presented front and center - not because they were humane - but because that is what sucked an entire nation into their unbelievable cruelty. Great movie. Loved the acting. Too many did it so well, that it adds too much to an already too long review.
