Storyline

Most of what we know about World War II comes from monochromatic images and pictures. But this documentary brings something different: it's a fascinating collage of colored images from that period, filmed in 8mm and 16mm. All the footage was gathered from private collectors, soldiers, tourists, state institutions, even footage shot by Hitler's private pilot and there's also images captured by Eva Braun, Hitler's companion. Most of the images were recently discovered, some of them hidden for more than 40 years and they were all remastered and put together by director Michael Kloft. Written by Rodrigo Amaro

A unique color documentary
2 May 2000 | by action-6See all my reviews

Das dritte Reich - in Farbe(The third Reich - in color) is a fantastic documentary. It documents life in Hitler`s Germany in the period between 1933 and 1945 and the war. It is really scary to see Hitler, his officers, the bodies in the concentrationcamps etc. in color, which makes the Hitler`s regime look frighteningly realistic. Watching the mass-rituals of the Nazis again in color is an experience which you`ll never forget. Being a German production, Das dritte Reich in Farbe manages to be very realistic and authentic. Definetely worth a look.
