Friedrich Nietzsche — was a literary and social critic, not a systematic philosopher. In ethics, the chief target of his criticism was the Judeo-Christian tradition. In the family moved to Naumburg on the Saale Riverwhere Nietzsche attended a private preparatory schoolthe Domgymnasium. He excelled academically and received an outstanding classical education there.
Synopsis[ edit ] The film begins with a prologue, the only commentary in the film. It consists of the following text, shown sequentially, against a grey background: The film opens with shots of the clouds above the city, and then moves through the clouds to float above the assembling masses below, with the intention of portraying beauty and majesty of the scene.
The cruciform shadow of Hitler's plane is visible as it passes over the tiny figures marching below, accompanied by an orchestral arrangement of the Horst-Wessel-Lied. Upon arriving at the Nuremberg airport, Hitler and other Nazi leaders emerge from his plane to thunderous applause and a cheering crowd.
He is then driven into Nuremberg, through equally enthusiastic people, to his hotel where a night rally is later held. Following this is a montage of the attendees preparing for the opening of the Reich Party Congress, and footage of the top Nazi officials arriving at the Luitpold Arena.
The film then cuts to the opening ceremony, where Rudolf Hess announces the start of the Congress. Then the film cuts to an outdoor rally for the Reichsarbeitsdienst Labor Servicewhich is primarily a series of quasi-military drills by men carrying spades. This is also where Hitler gives his first speech on the merits of the Labour Service and praising them for their work in rebuilding Germany.
The day then ends with a torchlight SA parade in which Viktor Lutze speaks to the crowds. The third day starts with a Hitler Youth rally on the parade ground.
Again the camera covers the Nazi dignitaries arriving and the introduction of Hitler by Baldur von Schirach. Hitler then addresses the Youth, describing in militaristic terms how they must harden themselves and prepare for sacrifice. Everyone present, including General Werner von Blombergthen assemble for a military pass and review, featuring Wehrmacht cavalry and various armored vehicles.
That night Hitler delivers another speech to low-ranking party officials by torchlight, commemorating the first year since the Nazis took power and declaring that the party and state are one entity.
The fourth day is the climax of the film, where the most memorable of the imagery is presented. New party flags are consecrated by letting them touch the Blutfahne the same cloth flag said to have been carried by the fallen Nazis during the Beer Hall Putsch and, following a final parade in front of the Nuremberg FrauenkircheHitler delivers his closing speech.
Only the best National Socialists are party comrades! The entire crowd sings the Horst-Wessel-Lied as the camera focuses on the giant Swastika banner, which fades into a line of silhouetted men in Nazi party uniforms, marching in formation as the lyrics "Comrades shot by the Red Front and the Reactionaries march in spirit together in our columns" are sung.
Origins[ edit ] Shortly after he came to power Hitler called me to see him and explained that he wanted a film about a Party Congress, and wanted me to make it. My first reaction was to say that I did not know anything about the way such a thing worked or the organisation of the Party, so that I would obviously photograph all the wrong things and please nobody—even supposing that I could make a documentary, which I had never yet done.
Hitler said that this was exactly why he wanted me to do it: He wanted a film showing the Congress through a non-expert eye, selecting just what was most artistically satisfying—in terms of spectacle, I suppose you might say.
He wanted a film which would move, appeal to, impress an audience which was not necessarily interested in politics. Around the same time she first heard Hitler speak at a Nazi rally and, by her own admission, was impressed.
She later began a correspondence with him that would last for years. Hitler, by turn, was equally impressed with Das blaue Licht, and in asked her to direct a film about the Nazis' annual Nuremberg Rally. The Nazis had only recently taken power amid a period of political instability Hitler was the fourth Chancellor of Germany in less than a year and were considered an unknown quantity by many Germans, to say nothing of the world.
In Mein Kampf Hitler talks of the success of British propaganda in World War I, believing people's ignorance meant simple repetition and an appeal to feelings over reason would suffice.
Riefenstahl was initially reluctant, not because of any moral qualms, but because she wanted to continue making feature films.Triumph of the Will (Triumph Des Willens) One of the minor manifestations of the prevailing Teutonic spirit which led to the Great War is to be found in the invention of a comparatively new phrase.
"Triumph of the Will," says Dan Olson of the analytical video series Folding Ideas, "is not a triumph of cinema." Already the proposition runs counter to what many of us learned in film studies classes, whose professors assured us that Leni Riefenstahl's glorification of Nazi Germany, despite its thoroughly propagandistic nature, still counts as a serious achievement in film art.

A supremely artful feature-length recording of the Nazi Party Congress, commissioned, according its credits, by order of the Führer, “Triumph of the Will” raises a host of moral and aesthetic questions. From the political point of view these movies are unacceptable for many people, but from the artistic and professional point of view, critiques consider Leni one of the best directors of all times.
Triumph of the Will: A piece of art about Nazi propaganda. This movie begins with a calm scene which is broken later on by Hitler’s appearance.
