Storyline

In Nazi Germany, film was considered a major medium for the Nazi Party propaganda machine. While pure propaganda material was not all that was produced by the domestic film industry, there still was a party line to be followed, especially with Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels having complete control over the content. This film explores a collection of the most significant artists involved in the medium with clips of the major films produced. Furthermore, the major themes and artistic boundaries of Nazi German films are presented from the regime's beginning in 1933 to its total defeat in 1945.

Lies
2 August 2019 | by tom-sanctiSee all my reviews

A film full of chutzpah lies, like we're used to of hollywood psychophatic directors. Nice film material, just put off the sound and the film is watchable
