Inside the private world of the F hrer In Love With Adolf Hitler documents the discreet thirteen-year long affair between Hitler and his mistress Eva Braun and the rise and demise of the Nazis, sourcing Braun's extensive personal collection of never seen before 16mm film and stills. In Love With Adolf Hitler exposes Hitler's personal charm, his inner circle of friends and confidents and his influence over a number of women who were eager to please and support him - his niece Geli Raubal, filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl, Winifred Wagner, daughter-in-law of Richard Wagner and Eva Braun. A bubbly, athletic blond, Braun first met Hitler whilst assisting his official photographer Heinrich Hoffman in 1929 when she was seventeen years old. In 1931 she moved into his flat in Munich despite protests from her modest, Protestant father. Living away from the political spotlight Braun's life was one of leisure, love and anguish. In 1935 she attempted suicide. Hitler bought her a house in the suburbs and later incorporated her into his will. Ranking herself as Hitler's most ardent supporter, she moved into his bunker in 1945 when the Russians reached Berlin.The pair were finally married two days before they both followed through with a joint suicide pact. Combining recent historical analyses, private testimonies and a visual montage of stills and film footage from Braun's and Hoffman's largely unexploited archive, the documentary provides a fascinating historical perspective of a notoriously evil mastermind. In Love with Adolf Hitler is a fresh and intimate portrait of on one of last century's most scrutinised autocrats.
