Movie Info

The Blue Light (Das Blaue Licht) is widely regarded as the best of the German "mountain" films of the early 1930s. Leni Riefenstahl both directed and starred in this film, playing a free-spirited gamine who dares to climb a precipitous mountain peak. Because she is the only member of her community to accomplish this, she is regarded as something of a witch. When she discovers a hidden crystal cave, the villagers change their tune and follow her up the mountain, stripping the cave of its riches. … More

Riefenstahl's affirmation of the occult has a certain morbid interest, but it's as a performer, posing leggily atop cloudswept crags, that she most compels attention.

It provides a fascinating look at Riefenstahl's giddy, rhapsodic talents, as well as ideological clues about the sensibility that produced the most powerful Nazi propaganda.

Beautiful photography doesn't overcome silly story.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

It's the stylised beauty of [Riefenstahl's] direction that takes this simple moral fable on to a higher plane and landed her the post of Hitler's film-maker.
