"December 1944: Berlin lies in ruins and the war is as good as lost. Goebbels is convinced all the country needs is a re-energizing speech from the Führer.

The only man who can help is Germany's finest acting teacher, Adolf Grünbaum -- a Jew"--Container.

This story of mistaken identity was taken from the experiences of writer Hermann Kant when he was a 19-year-old soldier in the German Wehrmacht. In the film, the soldier is drafted into the army just after the siege of Stalingrad in 1943 and is taken prisoner in Poland, where a mother has accused him of being the SS man who killed her daughter earlier in the war. While in prison he is given dangerous work in the prison yard but survives intact. Eventually, the soldier hears about the extermination camps of Lublin, Auschwitz, and other sites and changes his feelings toward the army. Meanwhile, his case is coming up for review and even a jail companion from his same army unit is afraid to come to his defense because of possible repercussions.

"Levy does his best to portray Hitler as a poor devil, an attempt that of course cannot succeed, because someone who admits that he is having a hard time can no longer be a poor devil. And just to make sure than no one will think of accusing him of trivializing the Third Reich or making fun of victims' suffering, Levy uses the family of Jewish actor Grünbaum as a moral counterweight to the Nazis." -- Spiegel Online.
