My Fuehrer

December 1944: The war is almost lost and a depressed and bed-wetting Führer is playing battleship while taking a bath. In desperation to mobilise the masses with a last powerful speech, the only person to help is his fomer Jewish drama teacher. After DOWNFALL the truly, truest and most definitely last HITLER spoof from Germany for more than a while.

December 1944: the "total war" is as good as totally lost. Goebbels, however, isn't willing to be so easily defeated. On New Year's Day, the Fuehrer is supposed to reignite the public's fighting spirit with an aggressive speech. The only problem is that the Fuehrer can't do it. Sick and depressive, he is avoiding the public. The only person who can now help is his former acting teacher, Professor Adolf Gruenbaum - a Jew.
Goebbels spirits him and his family out of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp and sets them up in the Reich Chancellery. Time is running out - the Fuehrer has only five days to return to top form...

Press Quotes

“A stellar cast, excellent production values and a neat storyline with a cheeky twist.” (Derek Elley, Variety)
