5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST! 23 Sep 2005
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hitler and women, but not quite accurate 30 Nov 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is a superb drama based on the relationship between Adolph Hitler (Stott) and his half niece Geli Raubal (Cassidy) between 1929 and her suicide in 1933.
Having read Ronald Hayman’s excellent book “Hitler+ Geli” this film brings out the essence of the relationship between Hitler and his niece but there are several sacrifices made for dramatic effect.
First Cassidy looks nothing like the real Geli who had a very full face and figure, and the only descriptions of her were written decades later in memoirs and interviews and describe her variously as “Her big eyes were a poem”, “an enchantress” and quite differently by the highly cultured and educated Hanfstaengl as “having the coarse bloom of a servant girl” a view Frau Hanfstaengl didn’t agree with.
Hitler’s treatment of Geli was not tyrannical as in the film but manipulative. When Geli told Hitler she wanted to marry Maurice he did not beat him, but allowed an engagement for the period until Geli came of age, before which Maurice negotiated a withdrawal, and Hitler protected Maurice for the rest of his life.
However Geli’s growing fear and disgust of Hitler is accurate and arose because of his perverted sado masochistic relationship with her, and was almost certainly the reason for her suicide as it was for a previous lover Renate Muller.
Fine acting from Stott and Cassidy combine with excellent direction for a gripping film.

5.0 out of 5 stars sheer brilliance ... 13 July 2011
Format:DVD
a brilliant portrayal of Hitler and Geli - who really knows what their relationship was like - we believe sexual as it HAD to be really ... she was of age and he was infatuated.... and royalty has never had a problem with first cousins getting married - so i am sure Hitler never really saw it a problem - tho i am sure his family was mortified, if they really knew what was going on ... the suicide is also a mystery - did Hitler shoot her for disobeying him, for not loving him, for having other lovers... who knows - did the Nazi party execute her for being an embarrassment to their new fuhrer? who knows? but the story is intriguing and this portrayal is majestic. 10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars NEIL B 5 Jan 2012
By NEIL B
Format:DVD
Ken Stott puts his heart and sole in to his character as usual. He should have one an award for this. This is a well made film. I was worried when i seen the Dutch writing on the back of the DVD case but thankfully the film was in English. A MUST!!!!
