Chris' Film Club: Downfall

Today in 1945 Adolf Hitler moved into the Fuhrerbunker, a huge fortified base in Berlin, where he would spend his final days. So I've picked the hilarious and laugh-out-loud film Downfall (just kidding, it's misery wall-to-wall) which shows these events. Featuring an incredible turn by Bruno Ganz as Hitler it is an incredibly powerful film that doesn't just depict Hitler as a maniacal villain but as a man (albeit an incredibly flawed and vicious one).
