"HITLER" had six doubles, trained by Goebbels in the interests of his security. When the Third Reich capitulated, these scoundrels should have been eliminated, so no-one could be in any doubt that Hitler was indeed dead.
Though he should have gone willingly to his death, one of the doubles survived, an actor known as KRONSTADT, who then married his former girlfriend Hortense in Berlin. His attempt to become Hitler once more ends disastrously with an investigation.
WEBSTER, an American, is searching out details about HITLER , going into factual detail and questioning his motives, to uncover his personality and "character". He has to face the permanent worry that perhaps he is dealing with a clever swindler.
In Paris, he finds himself face to face with that man that would be Hitler.
Conversation with the Beast was invited to Film Festivals in Toronto, Berlin and 20 others festivals from Australia to Europe.
