Short film from Leni Riefenstahl who's best known for being Hitler's ho and making Triumph of the Will. This film was shot during the 1935 NSDAP and shows German soldiers having fun, which I guess was meant to make other German's want to join the Army. While I didn't care for her "masterpiece" Triumph I did respect Leni's directorial touch, which is also on full display here. The 30-minute film has no narration but just various images of German soldiers doing there thing. The images are quite striking and some downright brilliant, which is the main reason to watch this.
