    "Der Untergang" ("Downfall" is the English title, I believe), and yes, it is an excellent film. It's about Hitler's final days in the bunker.

    I thought it was the Bunker - der Untergang is translated to "the Bunker"

    No, the English title of the film is "Downfall". And "der Untergang" can be translated as downfall, demise, doom, etc.

    Downfall (film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    LEO Ergebnisse für "Untergang"

    Downfall - I thought it was a very worthwhile movie.

    Re: Name of Nazi movie?

    Untergang means "under-go-way" quite literally.

    You take the "untergang" or "unterweg" to get to the subway, for instance. Or to go under the railroad tracks.

    My take is that it is a play on words. It also can mean "bunker" in slang.


    I'm baaack! See my Hot Milk For Breakfast blog under Social Groups for more details
