Default Der Untergang feat. Picard
There are too many clips using this scene online, but this one is really good, technically!

The title reflects what many Germans felt after WWII, not gratitude for the liberation but sadness because of their country's "Downfall". So the movie would have been appropriate if it had been produced in the fifties.

It is based upon the view of Hitler's secretary, so it focuses upon Hitler plus a few nazi elites around him and does not feature one scene out of Berlin, a pretty narrow view that does not once mention the Shoah or show all the other suffering in those last weeks of the war.

In Germany there are recently produced a bunch of similar movies which focus e.g. on the suffering of Germans who were expulsed from their homes after WWII without mentioning the people who were expelled from their homes by Germans during the war.
Hence my distaste, it is a, well not a revisionist, but at least a slightly ignorant tendency in German movies in the last years.
