This British documentary uses German films from the Nazi era to reveal the workings and history of that regime. Among the more interesting footage put to use are home movies shot by Eva Braun in Hitler's retreat at Berchtesgaden. Other footage includes German propaganda films. These clips have been edited together so as to tell a story without the use of an omnipresent narrator. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
