Schtonk!

Schtonk! is a farce of the actual events of 1983, when Germany’s Stern magazine published, with great fanfare, 60 volumes of the alleged diaries of Adolf Hitler – which two weeks later turned out to be entirely fake. Fritz Knobel (based on real-life forger Konrad Kujau) supports himself by faking and selling Nazi memorabilia. When Knobel writes and sells a volume of Hitler’s (nonexistent) diaries, he thinks it’s just another job. When sleazy journalist Hermann Willié learns of the diaries, however, he quickly realizes their potential value… and Knobel is quickly in over his head. As the pressure builds and Knobel is forced to deliver more and more volumes of the fake diaries, he finds himself acting increasingly like the man whose life he is rewriting. The film is a romping and hilarious satire, poking fun not only at the events and characters involved in the hoax (who are only thinly disguised in the film), but at the discomfort Germany has with its difficult past.

VexMovies Review:

Really fantastic movie, my favorite in comedy genre. Schtonk! is by far the best online movie production I’ve ever seen. I know it gets a lot of stick for being the mainstream popular movie, but honestly I can not think of anything wrong with the movie online.

It is a movie that truly knows what it is and wastes not even a second in conveying what that is. I did not know anything about this movie before, I did not even see a trailer, but I enjoyed it very much in the first place. The opening song still gives me goosebumps and increases the temperature of my body.

I’m not a true fan of history, but I’m like that too! I chose to load this wonderful movie in VexMovies so now this movie will be available online free for all.
