Downfall

Downfall (2004)

6 mistakes

Factual error: In the scene where a chemist is preparing a solution to give to Mrs. Goebbels which she uses to kill her six children, the chemist is holding a modern day conical flask with the brand name "Schott" marked on it. Flasks pre-1950's did not have these markings.

Revealing mistake: While the soldiers are putting the corpses of Eva Braun and Adolf Hitler in the ground outside the bunker to be cremated, one of their legs moves.

Dr Wilson

Continuity mistake: When the message from Göering arrives in the Führerbunker, the signature jumps from one side of the paper to the other. When we first see the machine printing the words "H. Goering, Reichsfeldmarschall", they are on the left side of the paper, as the officer removes the paper from the printer the signature is to the right.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where the officers are arguing after their meeting with Hitler you can see a boom microphone towards the top right of the shot. When the men move the boom operators' shadow is visible on the wall to the right of the shot. Taken from the UK Blu-Ray release.

Factual error: Traudl Junge originated from Munich, Bavaria. Her accent though is not Bavarian. That she really spoke with a Bavarian accent can be checked in later interviews.
