It’s the last days of Adolf Hitler, April 1945, and Hitler’s personal secretary Traudl Junge finds herself in the Der Fuhrer’s bunker. Facing inevitable defeat, Hilter’s moods range from defiance to fight or flee, remain loyal or opt for self-preservation. Eva Braun parties while Magda Goebbels kills her children. The movie goes on to show how Hitler and Eva lived their last hours in the Bunker.

Skakande film om Hitlers sista tid i livet. Den tid han spenderar i sin bunker i Berlin. Bruno Ganz som spelar Hitler gör ett ypperligt jobb. Vore dock spännande att få reda på om det som händer verkligen är baserat på faktiskt händelser och hur mycket som är fiktion.

In the mid-80’s two young climbers attempted to reach the summit of Siula Grande in Peru; a feat that had previously been attempted but never achieved. With an extra man looking after base camp, Simon and Joe set off to scale the mount in one long push over several days. The peak is reached, however on the descent Joe falls and breaks his leg. Despite what it means, the two continue with Simon letting Joe out on a rope for 300 meters, then descending to join him and so on. However when Joe goes out over an overhang with no way of climbing back up, Simon makes the decision to cut the rope. Joe falls into a crevice and Simon, assuming him dead, continues back down. Joe however survives the fall and was lucky to hit a ledge in the crevice. This is the story of how he got back down.

Mycket bra “dokumentär”. Den fångar upp dig från första början och håller dig på kanten av soffan genom hela filmen. Den är skapad av samma gäng som gör serien “Jag borde vara död” som går på Discovery. TYcker du om den serien kommer du verkligen tycka om denna filmen.
