One of the few overt propaganda films by the nazis
1 June 2000 | by (pennsylvania, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the best of the three overt propaganda films released by the nazis in 1933. It isn't very good. The young uncredited hitler youth playing the lead role is a poor actor. Furthermore. Hans Steinhof, the director, is highly derivative in the idioms he employs, borrowing heavily from (particularly leftist) films of the very early '30s. The in-film analysis of the propaganda in the version I have (from International Historical Films) is interesting but highly intrusive to the film's continuity.
