10. Triumph Of The Will
The movie shows giant crowds of cheering people, parades, firework displays, and signs of power and abundance. Throughout the film, there are messages of hope for the future that Germany’s failed economy will recover under Hitler’s reign.
In Hitler’s speeches, he promises that there will no longer be a class system and that all obedient, brave Germans will be taken care of. They are told that they can create their own “perfect” German society as long as they stand together.
While many people take the footage as historic fact, scholars have argued that many of the scenes could have been fictitious. Much like reality TV shows, many scenes in the movie were rehearsed and reshot rather than recorded as events happened organically.
