Summary: Narrated by Udo Kier, the film asks what the Nazi cinema of the Third Reich reveals about its period and its people. About 1,000 feature films were made in Germany in the years between 1933-1945: musicals, melodramas, romances, costume dramas, and war films. Only a few were overtly Nazi propaganda films. But by the same token, even fewer of them can be considered harmless entertainment. How did...

It offers a radical re-examination of the Third Reich from its incubation in the hopelessness which followed the German defeat in 1918 to the Nazi regime's final destructive spiral and the aftershocks of de-Nazification."--Jacket.
