The Empty Mirror (1996)

Film details


A postwar Hitler, holed up in an underground bunker, dicates his memoires to a typist, prompted by memories provided by the constant projection of films showing him at the height of his power and interspersed by discussions with close associates such as Eva Braun, Goering and Goebbels - as well as Sigmund Freud. Hitler sees his life and actions as visionary art on a massive scale.
