Max was a promising young artist who lost his arm in the Great War and with it his ability to paint. Upon his return he opens an acclaimed art gallery that caters to modernism. There he meets another war veteran and struggling artist named Adolf Hitler. Max encourages Adolf to develop his talent. But since Adolf is penniless and is without family or friends, the lure of politics soon wins Adolf's interest over art, setting into motion the most cataclysmic period of the 20th century.

I had never even heard of this movie, and now that I've seen it- any film that even flirts with the notion of making Hitler a sympathetic figure is always bound to have a hard time finding any kind of mainstream audience! Nonetheless, I thought it was brilliant, a non-euphemistic examination of the complex social forces at work in Weimar Germany. The character of Max is intriguing to begin with, but of course anyone who views this movie will invariably remember the wretched "Bavarian Corporal" as he deepens his political activity and comes to grip with the devastating realization of his lack of talent, a realization that, if this film is to be believed, would go one to have disastrous consequences for the entire civilized world.
