Until now, the feeling of shame does not leave the German nation. Until now, there is a rethinking of the events of 1933-1945. Hitler’s rise to power and a massive hypnotic fog descended on the enlightened, scrupulous, thorough people. Germany has always carried and presented the world with the beacon of music and literature, philosophy and science. And suddenly, twelve years of dictatorship with impatience for dissent, the doctrine of racial superiority and the extermination of millions by concentration camps, a massacre turning a meat grinder with mowing ranks of up to 13-14 year old boys. There is something to think about here, there is something to be surprised at.
And what about the movie? I think that I will not be mistaken in drawing some parallels with historical realities. This is another opportunity to return to the pages of your memory, to reflect on the events of seventy years ago.
The deserter, two weeks before the end of the war, finds a captain’s uniform and puts on it. You can wear it, wear it. You will be able to correspond to the running status, create. And the youth gets used to the image sticking to the new skin.
I play a role, such a role
Ah, in this make-up, of course,
In this make-up, of course, I am the king …
Adolf Scheckelburger “Hitler”, as you know, was a retired corporal. Gerold – in the same rank (closer to the end of the film, a document is removed from his mouth). Corporal Hitler, ascended by the party, rose to the pinnacle of power. Wasn’t it ‘from rags to riches’ – that is, it was ‘nobody became everything’. The same message in the film – I changed the shape of the appearance, believed in my star and you do whatever you like. The first steps are timid: that Adi, who has amassed supporters, that the on-screen character has to convince the ragamuffin of his position, to eat ‘for free’ in a tavern … Well, why don’t you mock the NSDAP. In the end, everything got away with it and … it started, it went …
As a viewer, at first it was difficult for me to understand what exactly the author wants to demonstrate. Is it just a movie about the last days of the war, or is there a deep meaning in the picture? Comprehension came closer to the middle of the tape. When I began to compare the material stored in my memory with the proposed video next. Further it became easier. I saw elements of satire, and foolishness, and comedy with drama. Before us is the DAMAGE OF A LITTLE PERSON, harnessed to a Sled carriage of history. Previously, he himself was in shabby rags and timidly fled from those who persecuted you like a beast, and now, having taken their place, he administers justice at his own peril and risk. Shoot! Bury it! Execute! Do not reason! A person with unlimited power, fooling around with permissiveness, not limited by anything or anyone.
You can here, if you wish, to expand the boundaries and understand the masquerade of our life. What costumes do we dress up in? Who do we pretend to be? What exactly does the uniform open before us, or the tailcoat? Kneeling and reverence without looking into the depths of the personality. Is not it so? And there? What do we have there? How is Adolf? A mixture of patias and knots of complexes aggravated by mental imbalance …
The marching ‘race’ of Captain Herald’s squad reminded, partly having amused, the adventure of another Great Combinator. Remember in The Golden Calf?
âKeep in mind,â said Ostap, looking sternly at his army, âI won’t allow looting. No violations of the law. I will be in command of the parade. All that we need, the udoyevs will give themselves. You will see it now. Prepare a place for bread and salt.
The final scenes to the accompaniment of the credits only reinforced the correctness of what was understood.
