I fully agree with the statement of another commentator of this film. It is confusing and does not give any new information. In fact, if you have not heard much about Veit Harlan before, you will be rather lost. I would like to see how he grew up, what background he came from, what his friends thought of him and so on. Instead we get a lot of interviews with his children and grand children and nieces and nephews. But many of them don't really have much to say and time is running At the end of the movie you wonder that so little info could be given in so much time!
It would have been great for example to have a closer look at his earlier films, which he did before he got the full attention of Goebbels, as well as the films he did after the war. Since he claimed that the Nazis had a huge influence on how his most notorious films of that time look, I would like to know how they differ from the uninfluenced ones. But they are hardly mentioned here. One can only dream about the idea of what for example Marcel Ophuls would have found out about Veit Harlan
