Downfall is one of my favourite films of recent years. Interesting, scary (in the big sense, not in the things-jumping-out-from-behind-the-sofa sense), well acted and well shot, it more than makes up for being performed in German.
However, the very fact that the dialogue is in German and then subtitled into English gives people a hell of an opportunity to fuck about.
Yes, it’s a bastardisation of a very serious film to make quite a funny point. But it’s so damn good, and plenty believable.
I loved it, basically.
