I originally posted this as a double-feature. But, as Chris pointed out, both movies together at 5 hours. That's a lot of time to sit around watching movies. So we'll just do the one. I changed the time from 5:30 to 6:30 too.
Downfall is a German film about the final days of Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany. It's based on the memoirs of Traudl Junge, who was Hitler's secretary, and a biography of a boy in the Hitler Youth. It's in German with English subtitles, so if you don't want to read during the film, you may way to skip this one. Bruno Ganz is so good as Hitler you'll want to reach into the screen and strangle him. This film is the origin of the Angry Hitler videos you see subtitled on YouTube.
I think I can fit about 8 people in my living room. I'll pull the futon out, so with that and the sofa and some extra chairs I think we can fit everyone. Feel free to bring snacks.
