LOOK WHO’S BACK (Theatrical Release USA 2015)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Look Who’s Back, a German comic spoof based on ‘what if Adolf Hitler woke up with the same lust to rule and to enact his political agenda in the year 2014,’ made an excellent box office profit in Germany. The script is novel and well-acted by cast members. It seems incredible that this concept is well-received even as dark comedy.

Storyline

In 2014 Adolf Hitler (Oliver Masucci) resurrects to an entirely new Germany not agreeable to his taste and sets about rising in influence and power through strategic use of Youtube, the Internet, and television. As his audience increases, his belief that he has been brought back for a reason increases.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director David Wnendt for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Oliver Berben and Martin Moszkowicz for making the film possible.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It’s worth a single viewing, but seems to have no current relevance.
