Two men who become friends, inspire on another, soar to heights of self-delusion and lose themselves in a madness that shatters the norms of culture and civilisation. This award-winning three-part docudrama tears open the veil of myths and half-truths obscuring a central figure of the Nazi regime. A man of profound contradictions, Albert Speer was a cultivated intellectual who allied himself with the 20th-century's most horrifying embodiment of evil. A brilliant architect, he built ostentatious monuments and controlled Germany's wartime industry. During Hitler's final moments, Speer, the protégé would turn against his master. Rare archive and home film footage, interviews with Albert Speer's children and a cast led by Sebastian Koch provide a revealing look behind the staged self-portrayals of Hitler and his architect.
