From the first to the last scene I was depressed, but I couldn't take my eyes of it. Great movie!

Incredible film. Ganz is peerless in portraying Hitler as the man behind der Führer.

I certainly would never list this movie as a "favorite" as I can't see myself watching it a second time, but it held my attention and was very well done. Definitely recommended.

After watching some Hollywood, I always end amazed at the way Germans portrait shady aspects of their own past. Not every single Nazi is a fanatical sadist, and, as if by magic, Soviet soldiers are not portrayed as animals, nor as the oportunistic ones who seized the hard work done by Americans.

Overall the film is pretty good, but I think the dialogues Hitler had with their generals got a bit overused, though. In my opinion, Ganz's wasn't that great. Probably, the character was a bit overacted sometimes, but you couldn't tell since Hitler it's definitely not the easiest, unless you wanna play caricatures.

In general, a great movie.

This is history.

The beginning and the ending are the best parts of the movie, and I'm saying this because it has a few boring moments.

Memorable acting by Bruno Ganz as Hitler

Worth watching.

I think the movie is all about two very important points. The first being the sheer amount of suffering and misery that one single man could inflict upon a nation (and continent) and also the crushing realization that in the end the rose colored glasses of the German people are shattered for good. That this man, our Fuhrer, is nothing more than a crazed madman, one who rose to a position of immense power and control, and blinded by our desire for prosperity and peace, we turned up our ears and minds and let him whisper sweet nothings into them.

To the criticism of the vast amount of characters who seem to rotate by without any character development, it helps immensely if you are well versed in the main players behind the Nazi power structure. Though I will admit the average moviegoer outside Germany (perhaps even inside) is not going to be that familiar with the men behind the dictator.

A brilliantly told story about war, defeat, and human nature featuring some spectacular performances. I highly recommend this film, particularly to anyone who likes "Letters from Iwo Jima" (by the end of "Downfall", Prof. Dr. Ernst-Günter Schenck proves to be a German version of Saigo, and the two films have similar messages about the value of human life.)

Bruno Ganz was a very convincing Adolf Hitler! Harfouch as Mrs Goebbels left on me a remarkable impression especially the suicide scene. I thought about it for days.
