In spite of being the first German-made film to ridicule Hitler, Mein Fuehrer: The Truly Truest Truth About Adolf Hitler fails to leave a deep impression on the audience.
Made by German writer-director Dani Levy six decades after the fall of the Third Reich, the film caused ripples across Europe for its bold attempt to poke fun at the delusional dictator.13 Apr 2008 - 12:00am

Ever wonder what a Nomura International Asian equities executive director earns?
We're not sure about today, but five years ago it was a paltry HK$2.63 million. Of course, that's just the basic salary on a 13-month basis.7 Feb 2001 - 12:00am
I FEEL as much loathing for Hitler's fascism as any reader could, and I agree that ATV's Hitler advertisement (South China Morning Post, November 14) was in very poor taste, but I believe that the understandable, but one-sided, response suppresses public debate and works directly to support the mindless stereotyping of ideas on which Hitler and his likes have thriven.17 Nov 1994 - 12:00am
ATV'S Hitler advertisement was a callous and insensitive exploration of an image of someone that has caused suffering to millions.
I am a student and have fortunately experienced no such tragedy myself, but I feel Hitler's image is one that still causes many people great distress and it should under no circumstances be trivialised.

THAT ATV and Euro RSCG Ball Partnership have difficulty distinguishing between the humorous and the grossly inappropriate seems pretty clear. However, one would have thought the flurry of outrage over the recent ad picturing Hitler would have brought hurried apologies from all concerned. It has not.16 Nov 1994 - 12:00am
ALLOWING the running of the disgusting advertisement, 'With 90 per cent of Europe under his control' (South China Morning Post, November 14) is irresponsible newspaper management.16 Nov 1994 - 12:00am
