Hitler: The Rise Of Evil ...
Hitler: The Rise of Evil is a Canadian TV miniseries in two parts, directed by Christian Duguay and produced by Alliance Atlantis. It explores Adolf Hitler's rise and his early consolidation of power during the years after World War I and focuses on how the embittered, politically fragmented and economically buffeted state of German society following the war made that ascent possible. The film also focuses on Ernst Hanfstaengl's influence on Hitler's rise to power. The miniseries, which premiered simultaneously in May 2003 on CBC in Canada and CBS in the United States, received two Emmy awards, for Art Direction and Sound Editing.The film's subplot follows the struggles of Fritz Gerlich, a German journalist who opposes the rising National Socialist German Workers Party. He is portrayed as to fulfill the essence of the quotation disputably attributed to Edmund Burke, which is displayed at the beginning and at the end of the film:"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
Hitler: The Rise of Evil ...
Hitler: the rise of the evil (Hitler: el reinado del mal en España, Hitler: el ascenso del mal en Hispanoamérica) es una miniserie de dos episodios que muestra la llegada de Adolf Hitler al poder. Uno de los temas centrales de la película es la influencia que tuvo Ernst Hanfstaengl sobre Hitler, quien fue ganando espacio en la política de la entonces República de Weimar hasta su consolidación como Führer en 1934. También se muestra cómo un periodista llamado Fritz Gerlich se opone desde el principio al nacionalsocialismo. Destacan las actuaciones de Peter O'Toole como Hindenburg, Peter Stormare como Ernst Röhm y de Robert Carlyle como Hitler.
But as for understanding the man himself, it is likely that as long as human history survives, we will never know how such titanic evil could exist in one person. The very idea of "making him human" seems a horrific conflict of terms, yet if it is at least possible to put a credible face on evil, Robert Carlyle ("The Full Monty") does so in "Hitler: The Rise of Evil," an often exceptional four-hour miniseries to be broadcast on CBS Sunday and Tuesday nights.
Carlyle is flat-out brilliant in portraying both Hitler's extreme insecurity and his obsessive determination to overcome it. As he rises in the ranks of the German Workers Party, he secretly practices those chilling, robotic arm gestures we've seen in so many newsreels of Hitler's speeches. His relationships with women are perverse. Lusting after his young niece, Geli (Jena Malone), he is incapable of following through on his feelings, and, instead, makes her a virtual prisoner. There's a chilling and extraordinary scene of metaphorical rape in which Carlyle forces the young girl to walk around and around him in circles in the middle of a field in the dead of winter. Nothing else happens; he never touches her, but the girl has been horrifically violated.
Director Christian Duguay and screenwriters John Pielmeier and G. Ross Parker use Ernst and Helene to demonstrate both how Hitler was able to sway otherwise intelligent people into buying his insane politics and how a certain enforced ignorance by others enabled his rise to power. So many people could have stopped him along the way, from military allies, to disgruntled fellow party members, to President von Hindenburg (Peter O'Toole in a crunchy, scene- stealing cameo), who made an accommodating political deal with Hitler to save his own fragile hold on power.
Hitler: The Rise of Evil is a 2003 Canadian two-part miniseries covering the rise of Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany.

Though an ambitious project, the series has several historical inaccuracies.

Nightmare Fuel: Putting the obvious fact it's a movie about Hitler's rise aside, there's Robert Carlyle's performance as Hitler. There's just something... off about him, that he could snap or kill someone at any minute.
Retroactive Recognition: Thomas Brodie-Sangster plays a young Hitler.
What Do You Mean, It's Not Political?: Many critics thought the series was a commentary on the fear surrounding The War on Terror. For that matter, cast member Julianna Margulies told one reporter that she thought Hitler was an allegory for George W. Bush.
Pre-1939, sporting a short, stumpy toothbrush mustache, and a grease-clad comb-over with a neat side parting was fine, perhaps even a fashion statement reminiscent of the all-singing, all-dancing Hollywood star, Charlie Chaplin, or the melancholic writer Ernest Hemingway. Sadly, that once classic and stoic look died a slow and painful death, not through the administration of cyanide like its wearer, but by its association with one of the cruelest, evilest, and most despicable men who have ever lived.
Hitler: The Rise of Evil is a Canadian made-for-TV miniseries starring Robert Carlyle as (yet another English speaking) Adolf Hitler. Like the title implies, the series focuses on Hitler's rise to power. The series is notable for its number of historical inaccuracies.
The series shows Hitler's life from childhood to finally having come to power as Fuhrer of Germany. The first half hour largely consists of cuts of important moments in Hitler's life. Examples are being beaten by his father, being refused by Vienna's academy of fine arts, World War One and Germany's subsequent loss. From that moment on, the series shows Hitler's rise to power. 041b061a72
