** At least, zero ''explicit'' references to Jews. One of the shown short excerpts from the speeches made during the Party Congress does speak about the need to keep races -- and the German race specifically -- pure.

A 1935 film directed by Leni Riefenstahl and funded by [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany the German National-Socialist government]]. It was shown once a year for [[PropagandaMachine propaganda]] purposes in every German cinema until 1945. Despite its loathsome subject matter (the 1934 Nazi Party Congress), the film was wildly successful at its intended purpose and to this day it forms a reference point for people's mental image of Nazi regime. Moreover, the extent that Triumph continues to be regarded as an innovative and groundbreaking film has its roots in a concerted effort by the German state to promote the film as an ideal in contrast to various forms of expression the Nazis disapproved of.

A 1935 film directed by Leni Riefenstahl and funded by [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany the German government]]. It was shown once a year for [[PropagandaMachine propaganda]] purposes in every German cinema until 1945. Despite its loathsome subject matter (the 1934 Nazi Party Congress), it is regarded as an innovative, groundbreaking film that showed how cinema could be used for propaganda and documenting spectacle. It proved highly influential--the medal scene that ends ''[[Film/ANewHope Star Wars]]'' is a direct lift from the scene in this movie where Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, and Viktor Lutze lay a wreath at the memorial for President Hindenburg.

Ultimately, the Triumph of ''Triumph'' is one of budget. With the full backing of the state ''Triumph of the Will'' sought to convince both foreign and domestic audiences
that showed how cinema could be used for propaganda and documenting spectacle. It the Nazi regime was unstoppable through sheer force of spectacle. Surprisingly (or not) the film was since proved highly influential--the medal scene that ends ''[[Film/ANewHope Star Wars]]'' is a direct lift from the scene in this movie where Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, and Viktor Lutze lay a wreath at the memorial for President Hindenburg.

Added DiffLines:

* LeaveTheCameraRunning: The marching band sequence late in the film. Even Hitler seems to get exhausted watching it.

* DocumentaryOfLies: Well, it ''self-defines'' itself as a documentary (of the 1934 Party Congress of the NSDAP), at least, and it was certainly innovative in the 'editing for emotional effect or make things appear to be other than they were' department. On the other hand, it's hard to excuse scenes like Hitler [[AGodIAm descending godlike from the clouds]] at the film's opening.
