After her years of exile from the directing chair, Riefenstahl has created another masterpiece on par with her creative genius from her years in Nazi Germany. Thoroughly enjoyed and an all time classic. This movie through its amazing use of technology and innovation has presented the modern world with a final representation of Riefenstahl;s rare talent. "Impressionen Unter Wasser" is equally as powerful as "Triumph of the Will" and "Olympia" and helps to portray Riefenstahl's belief that "form and content should coincide" as was seen in her production of "The Blue Light (1931)". The filming techniques in this masterpiece are well supplemented by the shear beauty of the sea and provide an insight into what exists across such a vars expanse of Earth.
