look who's back

Hitler is trying his hand at stand-up comedy in a new satire called 'Look Who's Back'. And it's coming to streaming service Netflix.

The film sees Hitler (played by Oliver Masucci) wake up in modern-day Germany, but stuck with his same views. Unrepentant, the Fuhrer turns to stand-up comedy, and proves a smash.

It's an adaptation of Timur Vermes' bestselling novel. It will be available on Netflix on April 9th.

Netflix has snaffled the rights in all its territories except for Germany (where it's proved a box office success), Austria, Switzerland, Benelux, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Japan and Taiwan.

The film is directed by David Wnendt, who took a guerrilla approach to making it. As well as scripted scenes, Wnendt uses hidden-camera encounters with regular Germans on the streets of Berlin. (Which poses the question: How would you react if you were out shopping and came face to face with Hitler?)

The trailer sees old Adolf coming to terms with 21st century life. He sets up an email address, gets caught up in a procession of Segways, and generally acts like a fish out of water.
