A two-part record of the 1936 Berlin Olympics, highlighted by truly eye-popping cinematography, camera movement and editing. Leni Riefenstahl was inhibited by the propaganda requirements of the Third Reich (and by the four gold medals won by black American athlete Jesse Owens), so she opted for the grace and poetry of bodies in motion.
