"...The power is evident in the film on a variety of levels..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 06/24/1994
"...This movie is fascinating in so many ways: As the story of an extraordinary life, as the reconstruction of the career of one of the greatest of film artists, as the record of an ideological debate, and as a portrait of an amazing old woman..."
Sight and Sound - 04/03/2003
"...Muller skillfully interweaves interview footage, staged sequences and archive material..."
An amazing documentary about an incredible woman, this film traces Leni Riefenstahl's life from her beginnings as a German action movie starlet through her career as film director on such Nazi epics as "Triumph of the Will" and "Olympia" and beyond. The 91-year-old subject, hailed as the greatest woman filmmaker ever, remains fiercely private about her controversial relationship with Hitler and the Nazis.
