Yes, this screams to be misunderstood.
Hitler and the Nazis were widly popular and admired until the start of the war and having the oven opened seered them a metaphysical evil. Like a messy divorice we ask what did we ever see in them...
I think that the history is so vivid that we often lose how and why they were so popular and were seen as they were before the war. They inspired ideas that made millions sacrifice their lives.
Had Germany been a living hell it is not likley that so many would have given their lives or fought so hard for their ideals. We saw that when we went after Sadam Husseins Iraq.
I think some movie with the intent of showing the Nazis as positive can be far more instructive. We often forget of how the Nazic consolodated power and their increase of government benefits. Lebens born, national health care and focusing on national health and physical actitivy. This idea that Germany could be unified and what kind of social conditions existed before Hitler.
