Movie Info

Alec Guinness plays against stereotype, imbuing his Adolf Hitler with an introverted solemnity in Ennio De Concini's Hitler: The Last Ten Days. Set almost entirely inside Hitler's Berlin bunker, the film chronicles the dying days of the Third Reich as the Allied armies close in on Berlin. Guinness's Hitler is an enclosed depressive who sinks slowly into madness, depression, and ultimately suicide as his 1,000-Year Reich collapses around him.

Critic Reviews for Hitler: The Last Ten Days

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

There's no tragedy in this movie, no sense of the vast scale of suffering outside the bunker.

June 12, 2020 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

It is curious, then, that a fairly serious-minded film should be so superfluous.

June 12, 2020 | Full Review…

What is good about the film is the treatment of Hitler by Alec Guinness, who gives perhaps the best portrayal yet of that bizarre figure.

June 12, 2020 | Full Review…

Sir Alec Guinness plays the the role of Hitler with the conviction of any role that Guinness undertakes.

August 16, 2021 | Full Review…

The genius of Guinness' impersonation is that he manages not only the moments of urbanity but also, grotesquely enough, of the charm that must have enthralled those who dedicated their lives to him.

June 12, 2020 | Full Review…

[Hitler: The Last Ten Days] offers neither instruction nor entertainment.
