Description du produit
Brother pitted against brother, this gripping saga portrays the rise and fall of the Third Reich, through the lives of two ordinary brothers who find themselves on opposite wings of the Nazi party during the Second World War. Helmut (Bill Nighy) the brilliant but opportunistic student, and Karl (John Shea) an idealistic athlete, both come of age at the dawn of Hitler's power in 1930´s Berlin. Although they go their opposite ways under the evil Nazi banner they are still bound by the strong bond of love between brothers and their shared passion for the same woman (Carroll Baker) --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

"Hitler's SS: Portrait in Evil" chronicles the experiences of two brothers, Karl and Helmut Hoffmann, during the rise, tenure, and collapse of the Nazi regime in Germany. The brothers are both intelligent and fundamentally decent people, protoges of a Jewish professor named Rosenberg (the great Jose Ferrer), but quickly gravitate to the dynamic Nazi Party during the early 1930s. Karl (John Shea) is a headstrong idealist who joins the storm troops; the shrewd and cynical Helmut (Bill Nighy) eventually opts for the SS. Karl is assigned to the staff of SA General Josef Biegler (Paul Brooke), while Helmut ends up working for the head of SS intelligence, Reinhard Heydrich (wonderful David Warner, showing the full range of his villainy).
When internal tensions lead to violence between the SS and SA, Karl ends up in Dachau, watching his former comrades get shot by firing squads. Helmut manages to get him released, but from that point on Karl is a bitter enemy of the regime and especially of the SS, in which Helmut is fast rising. Nevertheless, the brothers stick by each other, and Helmut manages to get Karl into the army before his hotheaded antics get him thrown back in Dachau.
The Hoffmans share a lover, a nightclub singer named Mitzi Templer (Lucy Gutteridge, who also appeared with Warner in the excellent George C. Scott version of "A Christmas Carol"). Templer works for a politically incorrect comedian named Putzi (played by none other than Tony Randall), who is part of the anti-Hitler resistance. Together they tour the front, where they meet up with Karl, who is growing ever more hostile to the regime and now plans to desert. Meanwhile, Helmut finds himself sucked deeper and deeper into the murderous schemes of his superiors, even as the tide of the war swings irrevocably against Germany.
"Hitler's SS" is loaded with history, and gives a surprisingly accurate portrait of life in the Hitler state, as well as the relationship between the SA and SS. The actors who play Himmler (John Normington) and Rohm (Michael Elphick) look almost exactly like the real men in question, and the scene where Hitler (Colon Jeavons) and his henchmen roust out Rohm and the SA leadership from bed at gunpoint, only to find most of them shacking up with young boys, is extremely well done(whether it actually happened or not is another matter).
The acting in this film is generally very good, which is no suprise considering the cast. I found Bill Nighy's performance to be superb (he was just in a play in D.C., as it happens). It would have been easy to play Helmut as a cynical weakling, and in fact that is what Helmut is, but Nighy manages to layer the character with decency and conflict (in one scene he buys back books confiscated from the dispossessed Rosenberg and then returns them to the professor) as well as opportunism and moral cowardice. The writers deserve credit for not succumbing to the tendency to make everyone in the black uniform a heel-clicking abomination.
There is "Hitler's SS" in a nutshell. Not only is it a must-have to anyone interested in the period in question, it's also a pretty damn good piece of entertainment.
The acting is so-so, but not bad if your expectations are not high. Jose Ferrer plays only a modest role in this movie--he is not the star. Overall an entertaining movie that is worth a try. The quality of the DVD video is slightly below average.
Two brothers caught in the web of naziGermany from the time before ww2 through the war and concentrationcamp atrocities.
Like holocaust it depicts people that could have been you or me. It is history and as such it needs to be told again and again.
It is not a masterpiece but it is a welltold.
well worth the money.
