AKA : Mein Führer - Die wirklich wahrste Wahrheit über Adolf Hitler
Levi's film is a fictive look at the week between Christmas and New Year's in 1944-45, when it started to dawn on Hitler he was losing the war. Hitler (played by Helge Schneider) is in a severe state of depression, though he is scheduled to deliver a rousing speech to the nation on New Year's Day. Goebbels (Sylvester Groth) then decides that what the Führer needs in order to deliver a speech that inspires the nation is some help from his former theatre teacher and namesake Adolf Israel Grünbaum -- a Jew (played by Ulrich Mühe, EFA Best Actor winner for his role as a Stasi officer in Das Leben der Anderen/The Lives of Others).
