In New 'Downfall' Parody, Hitler Is Outraged By Cannes Film Festival's Ban of Lars von Trier
He's back: In the wake of the Lars von Trier's controversial remarks about Hitler at the Cannes Film Festival, the Fuhrer himself has entered the fray. Last year, Constantine Film ordered YouTube to remove the proliferating parodies based on Oliver Hirschbiegel's 1984 film Downfall, in which Hitler, thanks to creative subtitling, rants about a variety of hot-button topics.
But with Hitler back in the news, it was inevitable that a new parody would emerge, and, in fact, one has popped up on YouTube. In his latest outburst, Hitler is infuriated that the festival has banned von Trier, and says, "I will not go to the film festival. Who wants my tickets?"
