Hitler In Hollywood is a gripping drama set in the late 1940s. During the height of the Cold War, the United States government dispatched a team of propaganda experts to Hollywood to ensure that American films portrayed a positive image of the country, while also promoting anti-Communist themes. However, two of their team members - a French woman named Simone and a Belgian man named Leon - are not quite what they seem.

Simone is a former actress who was once a star in European cinema before the war, and Leon is an academic who specializes in the study of cinema. Both have been brought in to advise the American government on how to create films that appeal to international audiences, especially those in France and Belgium. However, their mission soon takes a strange turn when they are asked to meet with a film producer who claims to have a script that stars none other than Adolf Hitler.

The film producer, played by Micheline Presle, is a survivor of the Nazi occupation of France and is convinced that this film, which he believes will be a satire, will help exorcise his personal demons. Simone, played by Maria de Medeiros, is initially horrified at the idea of Hitler being portrayed as a comic figure, but she soon realizes the potential that this film could have in exposing the barbarity of the Nazis to a wider audience. Leon, played by Wim Willaert, is more ambivalent about the project, torn between his desire to see his academic theories put into practice and a growing sense of unease about what they are doing.

As the three of them work on the film, they begin to experience a series of strange events. Leon is followed by mysterious men in dark cars, Simone receives threatening letters, and they all begin to fear that they are being watched. As they delve deeper into the world of Hollywood, they begin to realize that they are not the only ones with a hidden agenda. The director of the film, played by Samuel Finzi, is a former Nazi who has come to Hollywood to rehabilitate his image and continue spreading his propaganda.

The tension builds as the team races to complete the film, while also trying to uncover the true motives of the director and protect themselves from harm. Along the way, they meet a range of fascinating characters, including a Hollywood starlet who has a secret past and a group of left-wing activists who are dedicated to exposing the truth about the Nazi regime.

Overall, Hitler In Hollywood is a thought-provoking and nuanced exploration of the power of cinema and the impact that it can have on global politics. The performances are all excellent, with Medeiros, Willaert, and Presle all delivering complex and compelling portrayals of their characters. The film is expertly directed by Frederic Sojcher, who balances the dark humor of the script with a sense of genuine suspense and drama. For anyone interested in history, politics, or cinema, Hitler In Hollywood is a must-see film that will stay with you long after the credits roll.
