I saw this movie and felt the power of the German Armed Forces. It is something to think that in just 4 years, they were at war.

Awesome Movie!Reviewed bybandow5Vote: 10/10
Firstly let's put all politics aside and then we will see a splendid image of military technique from that particular epoch. This movie is of a great interest for people interested in militaria, re-constructors and such. No other documentary allows us to see how certain equipment is used in most proper way, how it works, how it is operated and so on. Just take a look on rapid deployment of PaK guns, AT crews fighting off tanks, Flak batteries in air defense role, such pictures have great learning potential. Scholars of military can learn very much about German strategies and military doctrine especially through well perpetrated maneuvers shown in this movie. Truly essential documentary for anyone interested in topic.
'Tag der Freiheit' marked Leni Riefenstahl's third and final visit to Nuremberg for the rally of September 1935, and is yet another film of hers once lost that she would doubtless have preferred had remained missing; but instead resurfaced in the 70's to further challenge her protestations that she had been present at the rallies solely as an impartial observer. She was by now limbering up for her film of the 1936 Olympics, and both the photography and editing of 'Tag der Freiheit' mark considerable advances on its ponderous predecessor 'Triumph of the Will'; and watching this bellicose display of military machismo it's again extraordinary to reflect that a woman was directing it.
Subtitled 'Unsere Wehrmacht' ('Our Wehrmacht'), the emphasis is this time squarely on the armed forces rather than the NSDAP, and the film was shrewdly sneaked into cinemas as part of the supporting program for the popular costume drama 'Der h?here Befehl' - thus ensuring plenty of people saw it - as well as screened in schools until 1938.
The 'freedom' to which the title refers is from the constraints of the Treaty of Versailles, the disarmament clauses of which had been denounced by Hitler the previous March and which are here shown being brazenly flouted by an aggressive display of military might with cutaways to the Führer looking on in approval. (The fellow with the monocle on Hitler's left is the newly appointed Commander-in-Chief of the Army, General Werner von Fritsch, later forced to resign on 4 February 1938 following trumped-up accusations of homosexuality by Himmler and Goering.) Exactly where all the bullets and shells supposedly being fired are ending up within the confines of the zeppelin field on which it was staged is alarmingly unclear. For the sake of the spectators and the aircraft shown being fired at, hopefully they're all firing blanks.
'Triumph of the Will' had begun with the arrival on the tarmac at Nuremberg of a lone private plane carrying Germany's new saviour. 'Tag der Freiheit' by contrast ends with the sky filled with military aircraft flying in formation (including a swastika), soon to be deployed in the Rhineland, which showed the direction in which the new Germany was now decisively and irrevocably moving.
