If one types the word “Hitler” in the IMDb, appear roughly 150 films that are concerned with the leader. In bookstores are piled Hitler books by authors like Joachim Fest and Sebastian Haffner. An immortal nightmare that haunts books, films and over our heads and we can even laugh, you think of film comedies such as The Great Dictator by Charlie Chaplin, or life or death of Ernst Lubitsch.
(# Us) make people laugh, also wants the director Dani Levy, in his new comedy, My Fuehrer – The Truly Truest Truth About Adolf Hitler. ” Even the title clearly suggests that the film does not want to educate or even minutely adjust to reality. No, this is a contrast program Hirschbiegel / Eichinger film Der Untergang.

This material was true basis for Levy’s Hitler’s fantasy of writing a screenplay that is true combined with a falsehood. Dani Levy wanted to continue the tradition of Chaplin or Lubitsch’s To Be or Not The Great Dictator, he notes in the press issue. And parts of it are also possible. Levy, a Jew, uses the Jewish joke on biting and incisive manner, but the film as a whole remains far too innocuous, and is the joke of his last comedy Alles auf Zucker! (2005) a world away.
