Downfall

Movie • 2004 • Drama  

Report
In April of 1945, Germany stands at the brink of defeat with the Russian Army closing in from the east and the Allied Expeditionary Force attacking from the west. In Berlin, capital of the Third Reich, Adolf Hitler proclaims that Germany will still achieve victory and orders his generals and advisers to fight to the last man. When the end finally does come, and Hitler lies dead by his own hand, what is left of his military must find a way to end the killing that is the Battle of Berlin, and lay down their arms in surrender.

As this film is based on historical events, there are several suicides throughout the film. At least one is shown in graphic detail.

As this is a film about Hitler's last days, there are references to Jews and the holocaust, but there is no anti-semitic language used. The only reference (that I can recall) is Hitler talking about "standing up to the international Jewry" or words to that effect. Overall, it is unsettling given the historical context, but it is not overly egregious. It is down to the viewer's discretion.

Hitler was 56 and Eva was 33…granted that’s probably pretty low on the list of problematic stuff Hitler has ever done but that’s not the point here LOL
