Audience Reviews for Olympia 2. Teil - Fest der SchÃ¶nheit
A masterpiece of filmmaking technique. Each part begins with a lengthy prologue, a lyrical wordless montage celebrating the human form. And the footage of the events themselves, although a bit repetitive at times, is for the most part filmed beautifully... a tribute to athleticism, often employing slo-mo and dramatic angles to capture bodies in motion. The film ends with a spectacular diving montage. It seems difficult to interpret the film as propoganda. It felt very even-handed to me.
not quite as evil or as pro-nazi as most people would suspect.... facism and racism take a far backseat, if that, to the pagentry of the games, and the unifying sportmanship and spirt of the olympics. Definitly a film ahead of its time, and proves that even Ol' Adolph can smile and enjoy a simple sports game, even if it is featuring an african american athelete
