Featuring Anthony Hopkins in an Emmy Award-winning performance, The Bunker is a searingly personal portrayal of the infamous Adolf Hitler during the last, desperate months of World War Two. With the Third Reich crumbling around him, the Fuhrer faces the final hours before a choice must be made between suicide or surrender.
January 16th 1945. With the Allies closing in on Berlin from the east and west, and Allied bombers blasting Berlin to a crumbling ruin, a desperate Adolf Hitler takes up permanent residence in his command bunker under the Chancellery Building. With time running out and the pressures of defeat mounting, an increasingly irrational Hitler issues unconventional and disturbing orders to a dwindling band of his most loyal followers.
Based upon the bestselling novel by James O'Donnell and drawing on numerous first-hand accounts from those who were there during those fateful decisions, The Bunker features a solid supporting cast, including Richard Jordan as Albert Speer, Piper Laurie as Magda Goebbels, Cliff Gorman as Josef Goebbels and Michael Lonsdale as Martin Bormann. This extended version is an electrifying account of one of wartime's most tragic and controversial downfalls.
