Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Alec Guinness is Hitler trapped in his bunker while Berlin burns above him. It's a brave, incredibly detailed performance, but the film's Italian writer/director Ennio De Concini conspires against him, going for the obvious (cuts to black-and-white documentary footage). He also unwisely adds hindsight in Simon Ward's Hauptmann Hoffman, who not only invades the bunker armed with battalions of postwar guilt, but also plants political doubts in the mind of Eva Braun, played by German actress Doris Kunstmann.
