The Writers: Michael Haneke on 'Downfall'

German born writer, director and Palme d'Or winner Michael Haneke gives us his take on Nazi movies Downfall and Schindler's List. When asked if he would make a movie about Hitler, he replied, "No. The question is, it's impossible for me to do that because of the idea of creating entertainment of this, turning this into entertainment, and that's why I have problems with Steven Spielberg's film about concentration camps."
