This is by far and away the best interpretation of Adolf Hitler I have ever seen. (and I've seen a few). The 2004 ITV drama is based on Hitler and his half niece from the years 1929 - 1945. Geli, played brilliantly by Elaine Cassidy is the young, sweet, and clever half-niece to the infamous dictator who stayed with him in Munich from 1929 till her sudden mysterious death in 1931. The story is based on actual events with only minor miscalculations. One being that Hans (One of Geli's lovers) played the violin, not the piano. However this does not matter greatly as the performance given by the actors, and the story itself, are fantastic. Ken Stott who plays Adolf watched through hours of archive footage and recordings of the Dictator in order to get into the role, and it really pay's off well. His gestures, how he composes himself, even his looks are a near spot on match for the original. The musical score is a simple but highly effective Orchestia that works brilliantly into the program. A nice change to this drama is that most actors used to play part such as Himler (Peter Wight) and Goebbels (Danny Web) make great doubles also, as do others with the only exception of Maurice played by Jake Wood. I watch this dvd frequently as it is Stott's Hitler that makes you laugh and cry along with him throughout. It is known that hitler was a very charming and intellectual powerful man to which this program shows. Recommended to all who have an interest in Hitler coming to power, and how incidents in his life could have effected his view on things later on.
