Downfall (Der Untergang)(2004)

A moving film that makes you unsure whether to feel compassion and sympathy to murderers or not.

A good view of Hitler's last few days in his bunker, and also the human nature of those who we have assumed were inhumane and heartless.

On one hand, I respect Hitler that he was loyal and unwavering, but I don't know if I should respect someone who killed all those Jews. However, I don't think we'll ever know if it was really their idea, or if there was something more bigger than just himself.
