Comparison:

  • Theatrical Version
  • Extended Version
Release: May 02, 2010 - Author: Doc Idaho - Translator: Matar - external link: IMDB
When the movie was first released on DVD it was a sure thing that it will be re-released as an extended version as well.
In contrast to various other extended versions „Der Untergang“ earns a lot of profit from the additional scenes. Exactly the relation between the happenings in the bunker and the outside are now a way better balanced. The, added with lots of new sequences, odyssey of Peter and the longer decampment through the bombed Berlin show more clearly how the civilians felt during the last days of war and the helplessness of the officers who try to think about a future civil life.
Inside the bunker Göbbels children are more examined which helps to explain his oldest dauther’s reaction. Various other sequences are actually just a make-over and don’t contribute to the movie. Compared is the DVD with the theatrical version and the German free-TV version (by ARD) in its extended version.
