Nazi weight loss

The poor lad was actually there when I read his work - I have a feeling that the expression on my face when I realised what he'd done will remind him to double check his meanings in the future:
 "In the film The Great Dictator" Chaplin mocks the Nazi diet."

This one is interesting as Larousse gives nine different definitions  (and consequent possible translations) for the word "regime".... some of which were new even to me. However, of course the irony is that in this particular context we just use the same word as, of course, we borrowed it from the French in the first place.
