Der Untergang / The Downfall is all over the place.

It premiered yesterday in Germany and it's the first German movie ever to depict the Führer, played by Bruno Ganz.
The Guardian reviewer called it The Human Hitler, while the Frankfurter Allgemeine claims the movie «blends out the brilliant party leader and statesman and feeds on the legend of the mythical beast» but the screenwriter failed.
The movie is based on Joachim Fest's book, Inside Hitler's Bunker, an author who was once a teenage PoW and became Germany's first and finest analyst of the Third Reich. Brief interview on the Independent.

The official movie website, most appropriately, is German-only :-[
