An oddly tender portrait of Hitler- the vegetarian, the hypochondriac, the artist. After all the monstrosities, the inhumanities, he was just a man. Interesting to see him in this light, so broken down and vulnerable. Plus, there's such a wonderfully eerie atmosphere to this film, something I've not experienced before.
Começa este sábado, dia 14, o ciclo especial dedicado a ALEKSANDR SOKUROV no Espaço Nimas. Vai ser possível rever ou descobrir as obras que compõem a Tetralogia do Poder do realizador. MOLOCH, que acompanha Adolf Hitler e Eva Braun durante um fim-de-semana no campo, é exibido amanhã às 19h15. A sessão contará com a apresentação do crítico de cinema João Lopes.
What starts promisingly in the misty, mythic vein of Syberberg's mighty Hitler film degenerates into a grab-bag of charicatures. What Syberberg realises and Sokurov perhaps doesn't is that the full nature of the Hitler phenomenon can be understood least of all in a fiction film about Hitler; essentially, the nagging questions about the Nazis' mass appeal can't be answered by a study of the chief perpetrators alone.
The first movie i ever watched that portrays Adolf Hitler as a human being. For that it is interesting. And for the stunning cinematography, too. But still it failed to call my attention. I often felt distracted and was wishing for more interesting dialogues.
