He befriends a Jewish man who persuades him to go into politics.
Any film about Adolf Hitler is guaranteed to stir controversy in Germany, never mind a film based on a farce. The title, taken from the Nazi dictator’s own infamous diatribe, is enough to upset people. But Swiss director Urs Odermatt’s film adapts a popular play of the same name by George Tabori, a farce full of fast-paced jokes. The producers of the joint German-Austrian-Swiss movie — which comes out in Germany today — will no doubt hope to mampf some of the success enjoyed by Oliver Hirschbiegel’s “Downfall.
Mein Kampf by George Tabori
Successful at the box office, it also received an Oscar nomination. But despite Bruno Ganz’s stunning turn as Hitler in the last days of the war, controversy raged in Germany over whether “Downfall” was right to even depict the Nazi dictator as human, capable of charming secretaries and being nice to dogs. Hitler farces are even dicier.
He fails but meets a blonde girl called Gretchen Anna Unterbergeras well as a grey-bearded old Jewish man called Schlomo Herzl. Odermatt’s big-screen version tries to mix realistic details with farce. Hitler speaks in High German in Tabori’s play; the comedy is blatant and relentless.
But the film version has a provincial Austrian dialect, like the real Hitler, and the whole film, eventually, becomes mired between genres. Reaction in Germany has been largely negative.

Margot Ruhlender, a critic for the dpa news agency, says that Schilling “shines as the young Hitler,” though the director fails to get it right.
Not having dared to jump into the total absurdity of the play is his weak point. Der Tagesspiegela Berlin paper, calls Odermatt’s film “insipid.
A similar theme is picked up by Michael Ranze, in the Hamburger Abendblatt. The Tabori play is “not a realistic, let alone historically accurate recreation of Hitler’s formative years in Vienna aroundbut an attempt to trace the pathology of this man; his neuroses, his fixations, his thoughts.
The bar is still high for Hitler films in Germany. Neither a serious drama nor a farce automatically disqualifies a director; but you have to be careful. Die Homepage wurde aktualisiert.
