Hitler: The Last Ten Days is a 1955 British-Italian film that depicts the last days of Adolf Hitler's life. The movie is directed by Ennio De Concini and stars Albin Skoda as Hitler, Oskar Werner as Captain Wünnenberg, and Lotte Tobisch as Eva Braun. The movie opens with Hitler and his closest advisors hiding in the Führerbunker, an underground bunker in Berlin, as the war is raging on in the outside world. The German army is losing ground against the Allies, and Hitler is increasingly isolated and paranoid. The movie portrays Hitler as a man struggling to come to terms with the fact that his dream of a Nazi Germany has come crashing down around him.

The film is a character study of Hitler, and it portrays him as a delusional and irrational man who has lost all sense of reality. Despite the bleak situation, Hitler refuses to admit defeat and clings to the hope that some miracle will save his regime. To make matters worse, he is suffering from severe physical and mental deterioration due to his drug addiction and apparently cannot control his outbursts. The film shows Hitler obsessed with his own image and seeing himself as the last hope of the German people, which leads to increasingly irrational and erratic behavior.

The Last Ten Days of Hitler also depicts the relationships between Hitler and the circle of people still surrounding him. Eva Braun, his mistress, is shown as a devoted but naive woman who loves Hitler but has no real understanding of the historical significance of events happening outside the bunker. Joseph Goebbels, the Minister of Propaganda, is portrayed as a cynical and desperate man who will do anything to save his own skin and the Nazi movement. Captain Wünnenberg, the only sympathetic character portrayed in the film, is shown as a tactical officer who struggles with his sense of loyalty to the Nazi cause and his own morality.

The movie is bleak and devoid of hope, as none of the characters can escape the inevitable collapse of Hitler's regime. While it is unclear how much of what is portrayed in the film is historically accurate, the story offers a chilling insight into the last days of one of history's most infamous figures.

The film also offers a fascinating portrait of life in the Führerbunker. The claustrophobic atmosphere of the underground bunker, with its cramped rooms and limited resources, is portrayed in stark detail. The constant bombardment by Allied planes and artillery adds to the sense of despair and hopelessness felt by the characters. There is no sense of escape or redemption from their situation, and the characters are trapped in a tense and oppressive atmosphere.

The Last Ten Days of Hitler is an intense and disturbing film that offers a bleak perspective on the last days of the Nazi regime. Although it may not be entirely accurate from a historical standpoint, the movie offers a compelling character study of one of history's most notorious figures. It is a must-see for anyone interested in the final days of World War II and the psychology of the people involved.

Hitler: The Last Ten Days is a 1955 documentary with a runtime of 1 hour and 46 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.2.
