The incredible German film Downfall, about the last days of the Nazi regime, is an amazing film — which perhaps explains why its footage keeps getting cribbed by parodists. Last week, the film purported to show Hitler’s reaction to Blu Ray’s victory in the hi-def wars. This week, it’s the Cowboys’ playoff loss to the Giants.

If you're a footballer in any country, you'll understand the second one. Both are funny. (As a confirmed Germanophile, I have a hard time following the subtitles against the spoken word in these clips. But if you don't know German, it's better.)

Too bad the movie title has been translated, "Der Untergang" sounds so much nicer. \o_

My German isn't exactly, well... not exactly anything... ;)

"Downfall" sounds good to me. (I do love the sound of German though. Some languages aren't nice to listen to, but I find German very nice.)

Crap! This movie was offered for free with a newspaper recently, and I passed the opportunity (or more appropriately, I forgot about it). And my friends told me it was such a helluva film.

>:(

Lashiec, what's more fun is if you've ever had the opportunity to watch the German channels (usually offered on the disk networks), you recognize so many of these actors and actresses. After you see this movie, you go back and watch all the others, such as 'Battle of the Bulge,' 'A Bridge Too Far,' 'The Bridge at Remagen' in a different light. Just be sure to watch it in German with subtitles, not the English audio.
