As one of the final films of his long career, the great G.W. Pabst undertook a film depiction of the possible goings-on in the bunker as Adolf Hitler, his wife Eva, and some of the higher-ups await their eventual end. While these maniacs are trying to cope with the turn of events, there is

still a war going on in which they are supposed to be making important decisions. In walks Werner, a soldier just following orders, who wants Hitler to approve orders to send reinforcements to the front. Werner acts as a contrast to others inhabiting this bunker, apparently to suggest that not all

Germans were maniacal Nazis, but normal people just trying to live. Pabst's political stance had always been a bit mysterious; at one point he denounced the Nazis then fled to France. Yet a couple of years later he was back in Germany making films for the Nazi party. THE LAST TEN DAYS seems to be

another of his efforts in which he exonerates himself of any possible connection with Nazi ideals. That aside, he was still a capable filmmaker at this point, effectively depicting a period that many people want to forget. (In German; English subtitles.)
