Last Ten Days, The (1955)
E' imminente il crollo della Germania nazista. Adolf Hitler, col suo stato maggiore, si trasferisce nel rifugio sotterraneo apprestato a Berlino, sotto il palazzo della Cancelleria, mentre il paese subisce l'inarrestabile avanzata delle truppe sovietiche. Hitler continua a lanciare ordini folli e, nel tentativo di fermare la marcia del nemico, fa allagare la ferrovia sotterranea sotto la Sprea, causando la morte di migliaia di berlinesi ; molti dei suoi seguaci cercano di sottrarsi al pensiero dell'incombente tragedia e si abbandonano in un'orgia sfrenata. Alle musiche, ai canti, ai balli che accompagnano l'orgia, fanno riscontro il fragore del bombardamenti e delle mitragliatrici, la marcia cadenzata delle truppe, gl'inni marziali. La tragedia si chiude col suicidio del Fuhrer e della sua compagna.
