Where to begin with this highly original, unique film? A young boy in Hitler's youth army has Adolf Hitler as his imaginary friend. He tries to believe what he thinks Adolf wants him to do, but his life is turned upside down when he discovers his own mother is hiding a young Jewish girl in their home. Can a movie about Nazis and the last days of World War Two be funny? Well it was laugh-out-loud funny, but it was also heartbreaking and thought provoking. I thought it was an excellent film, tackling difficult subject matter in a fresh, unique but deeply thoughtful way. This movie performs a difficult tightrope act, as it shifts in tone from funny to tragic and back again. Sometimes the shifts in tone were a little jarring, but overall I thought the movie was brilliant. Highly recommended.
