The bastard love child of Charlie Chaplin’s The Great Dictator and Mel Brooks’ The Producers, My Führer is a wildly provocative and laugh-out-loud satire about Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich.
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. Adolf, however, is only a shadow of his former self; demoralized and depressed, he hides in his office. The only man who can help is Germany’s finest acting teacher, Adolf Grünbaum – a Jew.
A film by Dani Levy (Go For Zucker). Starring Ulrich Mühe (The Lives of Others) & Sylvester Groth (Inglourious Basterds).
"Preposterously successful! Miraculously straddles the matzo-thin border between daring and tasteless." - Slant Magazine
