A film by Dani Levy

The bastard love child of Charlie Chaplin’s The Great Dictator and Mel Brooks’ The Producers, My Führer is a wildly provocative and laugh-out-loud satire about Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich.

December 1944: Berlin lies in ruins and the war is as good as lost. Goebbels is convinced all the country needs is a re-energizing speech from the Führer. Adolf, however, is only a shadow of his former self; demoralized and depressed, he hides in his office. The only man who can help is Germany’s finest acting teacher, Adolf Grünbaum – a Jew.

A film by Dani Levy (Go For Zucker). Starring Ulrich Mühe (The Lives of Others) & Sylvester Groth (Inglourious Basterds).

What the Critics are Saying

"A pointed satire on Hitler and the Nazi elite... A biting look at the Third Reich."

"A stellar cast and a neat storyline with a cheeky twist." - Variety

"Mühe excels! Groth is perfect." - Compuserve

"Off-beat, provocative!" - Fresno Bee
