This film, about Hitler's last days as the Russians closed in around Berlin, painted as subtle and merciless a picture of hell as I've ever seen in the movies. I found the portrayal of the relationship between Hitler and Albert Speer particularly interesting.

As good as Bruno Ganz is as the Fuhrer, and he's astoundingly good, Ulrich Matthes' Goebbels steals most of his scenes with barely any lines, just a chilling glower.
