This film was highly controversial when it came out in 1973. It deals with the Nazification of Germany from 1933 to 1945, told through a compilation of Nazi footage, newsreels, propaganda films, and Eva Braun’s home movies. The videos speak for themselves without any narration. Most of the film is a compilation of reels of everyday life in Germany. Watching private footage of those close to Hitler that I’ve never seen myself was distressing, knowing what all this led up to a few years later. The film beings with aerial footage of Berlin’s heyday in the 1930s and ends with similar footage depicting a heavily bombed Berlin in 1945.
