Good but depressing aura
24 October 2001 | by KakuekeSee all my reviews

"Hitler: The Last Ten Days," is a fine film and one of the better attempts -- in events, in people, in atmosphere and personal quirks -- at historical accuracy on any subject. Alec Guinness is excellent as Hitler and captures well his stiff mannerisms and stern bearing, as well as his hysterical outbursts. Beginning with a celebration of the Fuhrer's last birthday, the atmosphere grows gradually more and more depressing, while Hitler from time to time peppers his entourage with his disoriented visions of an actual victory to come; this is foiled with very brief "real" vignettes of historical truth--what is actually happening as Hitler speaks. Oh well, there are a lot of pretty women (certainly, Doris Kuntsmann is much more attractive than was Eva Braun) and cream desserts, as well as musical interludes, to keep one still interested.

Hitler's ravings at his generals and their reactions are very well done, as in "Winds of War." Adolfo Celi, best known as Largo in "Thunderball," is good as General Krebs, not a household name, but Hitler's chief sounding board in the film. In his countenance we see the growing despair, the occasional protest, the sad and awkward facial expressions indicating wait, aren't there checks and limits (and reality) to you, can people really be as evil as you want them to be, are those who stand accused by you really deserving of your characterization? The final scene, with Hitler and Eva just before their suicide, is an interesting interpretation and captures the extreme utter selfishness and cruelty of the Fuhrer's character.
