Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The bastard love child of Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator and Mel Brooks' The Producers, My Fuhrer is a wildly provocative and laugh-outloud satire about Adolph Hitler and the Third Reich.

December 1944: Berlin lies in ruins and the war is as good as lost. Goebbels is convinced all the country needs is a re-energizing speech from the Fuhrer. Adolf, however, is only a shadow of his former self; demoralized and depressed, he hides in his office. The only man who can help is Germany's finest acting teacher, Adolf Grunbaum - a Jew.

A pointed satire on Hitler and the Nazi elite... A biting look at the Third Reich. --Jewish Journal

Laughs, good performances and lots of fun for history buffs! --Hollywood Reporter

Format: DVD
Marked by an excellent performance by Ulrich Muhe ("The Lives of Others", "Funny Games"), this tragicomic film presents an historical fantasy blending fact and fiction, set in the waning months of World War II. Muhe plays Adolf Grunsbaum, an acting and voice professor, a humanist, and a prisoner in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp. One day, he is mysteriously rushed away from the camp, through the bombed out streets of Berlin to the HQ of the beleaguered Nazi party. Goebbels (Groth, who plays the same role in "Inglourious Basterds"), a former student and fan, had enlisted Grunsbaum once before to help to hone the Fuhrer's famous oratorical skills and he is hoping that the professor can work his magic once again. The position will grant Grunsbaum a unique opportunity; the chance to kill Hitler. Will he take advantage of the situation and forsake his deeply-held scruples?

Helge Schneider plays Hitler as a deeply wounded, petulant child, striving in vain for the approval of his arbitrary and abusive father. He is a simpering wretch who has lost the bluster of his youth as his empire- and his resolve- crumbles. Alone in the mostly empty building steadily rocked by Allied bomb runs, he is deceived and patronized by the officers around him, even as they plot his overthrow.

This is not a comedy, per se, as there are very few jokes. A good portion of the story is a kind of psychoanalysis of Hitler and his motives.

Extremely was made movie that depicted a "what-if" scenario with humor battling the Nazi's. Bottom line is that Hitler has lost his mojo, and Goebbels is desperate to help Hitler regain his mojo in the waning days of the third Reich. A jewish professor of speech and acting is "hired" (taken out of a concentration camp) about a week before Hitler is to make an invigorating speech to the populace of Berlin. Enough said without giving the plot away. There are allot of humorous moments utilizing lies, etc between Hitler's staff, and the professor intertwined with Hitler and his psychological state of mind.

A comedy centering on Hitler cannot be the easiest story to make, but Dani Levy does an exemplary job.

The last line of dialog in the film tells why this is an important film: ,,Weil wir verstehen wollen, was wir nie verstehen werden" -- Because we want to understand, what we will never understand-- And amid the drama and comedy you may learn something about what propelled the psyche of Hitler.
