Two men who become friends, inspire one another, soar to heights of self-delusion and lose themselves in a madness that shatters the norms of culture and civilization. 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 months, Speer the protege would turn against his master. Rare archive and home movie footage of the two men, interviews with Albert Speer's children and a cast led by Sebastian Koch (Block Book, The Lives of Others) provide a revealing look behind the staged self-portrayals of Hitler and his architect.
