Thanks for the interesting discussion.
My big issue with the film Downfall, is the outright changing of the facts as to the outcome of many of the main characters in the film--including Junge.
The first time I saw the film, I was entranced, but then the part where Junge and the young boy manage to walk through the Red Army soldiers unscathed and then literally ride off into the German sunset seemed a bit odd, given what we know was the fate of over a million German women in 1945.
The reality was wholly different from the fictionalized ending as portrayed in the film. Together wit
