Bruno Ganz passed away yesterday after he was diagnosed with cancer last year His iconic role in Downfall, which was titled Der Untergang in German, sparked thousands of parodies online in which the film subtitles were changed. The historical drama was nominated for the Academy Award for the Best Foreign Language Film and it won the BBC Four World Cinema Award. It depicted the last 10 days of Hitler’s rule over Nazi Germany in 1945, though it sparked a debate as to whether the evil warmonger should be allowed to be portrayed “as a human being”. Ganz picked up the Goldener Gong, the Jupiter Prize and the Best Actor gong at the Bavarian Film Awards for his performance. He also played a vampire in Werner Herzog’s film Nosferatu the Vampyre in 1979 and an angel in Wim Wender’s Wings of Desire in 1987.

He went on to work with some of the biggest names in cinema, including Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola on the 2007 film Youth Without Youth.
