I'm honestly surprised this was even made considering the hyper-politically correct environment we are currently living in.

It looks so bizarre! Hard to believe that this was pitched to some producers, and they said, "Yeah! Let's do this!"

I got a serious Wes Anderson vibe while watching the trailer.

OK, I'm also shocked this is getting made. It looks great, and I'm definitely going to see it.

I need to find it on Youtube but one of the Three Stooge's shorts from the WWII years remains my favorite to this day and I distinctly remember seeing that short for the first time on TV when I was a kid. It's the one where Moe is Hitler, Curly is Mussolini and Larry is Tojo and they are arguing over war strategy as they look over a huge map of Europe.


edit: I found it!! Youtube rocks. smile

Remember, The Producers? Now I have "Springtime For Hitler" playing in my head!

And now it's..,,Springtime for Hitler and Germany;
Deutschland is happy and gay!
We're marching to a faster pace
Look out, here comes the master race!
Springtime for Hitler and Germany
Rhineland's a fine land once more!
Springtime for Hitler and Germany
Watch out, Europe
We're going on tour!

Mel Brooks is probably proud of this new effort.

Speaking off Nazi comedies, 2015's Look Whose Back was pretty good. The one where Hitler wakes up in current time and ends up on cooking shows and such. German made fim, worth a watch.

I was thinking of this too. an excellent and funny film suddenly turned chilling when 'Hitler' displays his skill at oratory using pauses and pathos to grasp the audience in the TV scene. A thought provoking film as this looks as though it may be. Will it be shown in nations where the swastika image is outlawed?
