Adolph Hitler’s Home Movies

2025. ADOLPH HITLER’S HOME MOVIES (late 1930s/mid-1940s-Germany). COLOR. The infamous Eva Braun was the mistress of Adolph Hitler, and this film consists of the home movies she filmed prior to and during the Second World War. Most of the footage was shot in and around Hitler’s picturesque mountaintop estate. It shows Der Fuhrer in various informal settings, garbed both in civilian dress and military uniform. He is seen reading press reports, conversing with Nazis officials, greeting foreign dignitaries and national celebrities and strolling around the estate grounds. Hitler is often shown playing with the children of his underlings. Eva poses with her various pet dogs and picks flowers with the wife of Albert Speer. There are personal, up-close looks at such infamous souls as Speer, Martin Bormann, Joseph Goebbels, Heinrich Himmler and Reinhard Heydrich. After a while the film takes on a surreal quality. On one level, these might be the home movies of your next door neighbor’s grandmother, only with the presence of swastikas and men garbed in Nazi military attire. As you watch the film, it is imperative to bear in mind that the seemingly civilized men with smiling faces who stand around chatting in the sunlight were the same individuals responsible for the slaughter of millions. “Silent” film with musical score. 53 minutes.
