Storyline

Der Sieg des Glaubens (English: The Victory of Faith, Victory of Faith, or Victory of the Faith) (1933) is the first propaganda film directed by Leni Riefenstahl. Her film recounts the Fifth Party Rally of the Nazi Party, which occurred in Nuremberg from 30 August to 3 September 1933. The film is of great historic interest because it shows Adolf Hitler and Ernst Röhm on close and intimate terms, before Röhm was shot on the orders of Hitler on the Night of the Long Knives in July 1934. All known copies of the film were destroyed on Hitler's orders, and it was considered lost until a copy turned up in the 1990s in the United Kingdom Written by pameerkhan

Trivia

This film includes footage of Ernst Röhm, head of the Nazi Party "Brownshirts" and heir-apparent to the Head of the NSDAP (National Socialist German Worker's Party). In June 1934 Adolf Hitler, suspecting a coup by the S.A., gave orders that Röhm and much of the S.A.'s top leadership be arrested and executed. All references to Röhm were ordered to be erased from German history, which included the destruction of all known copies of this film. The film Triumph of the Will (1935) was produced to replace it.

The prequel to Triumph of the Will
8 January 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Triumph of the Will is a remake of this film, Riefenstahls earlier effort. However only myself and a few others have seen this film in it's entirety as it is generally believed lost. It is a fantastic film in that one can truly see how Riefenstahl was developing her unique documentary style which would later result in Triumph of the Will, Day of Freedom Our Armed Forces and finally Olympia I and II. Sadly this film will probably never be released to the general public as it is heavily protected by the German Federal Archives and rights are administered through Transit Film Munich. Rating? Three of Five Stars!
