  1. Is this from “Inglourious Basterds”? I haven’t seen it yet. The actor playing Hitler looks like Elton John with a bad wig and toothbrush moustache.

    1. It’s from the movie “Downfall” about the last days of Hitler from inside the bunker. It’s actually a really good movie despite not being able to watch the above scene without giggling now.

  2. My favorite one of these is where Hitler bitches about not getting Billy Eliot tickets.

    When he starts talking about his mother’s dress….I just lose it.

  3. Oh, and I do really recommend “Downfall.” It’s an excellent movie, and Bruno Ganz is superb as Hitler. He makes him crazy without making him insane.

  4. I always laugh at these, but feel sad that Bruno’s Ganz’s bravura performance is sunk beneath them all. It ‘s worse than what the Lone Ranger did to Verdi.

  5. well, that’s a really hilarious translation. sadly, i’m german and it’s quite hard to shut down the meaning of hitler’s spoken words in one’s mind and concentrate on the subs, because i get goosebumps everytime i hear them (NOT because i like them!!!). ganz’s acting is absolutely superb in this movie.
    btw, love your blog!
