Trenker and Riefenstahl

1 h 29 min201518+
Mountaineer, actor and film director Luis Trenker travels to the Venice Film Festival to revive his faltering career. Meanwhile, legendary filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl is preparing a devastating blow against him. A battle between two larger-than-life personalities is about to be unleashed, a duel between pioneer filmmakers who have gone down into history as faithful servants of a murderous ideology.

An excellent film, high production values, fine acting, beautiful photography, captivating and entertaining story. I could find no reviews of this either here or elsewhere, so hesitated to rent it, but I'm interested in film history, so took a chance. It did not disappoint. It seems to be generally based on a true story though I'm not as sure about the details. It's mainly about the careers, romance, and rivalry of these two legends of 1930s German film and about Trenker's efforts to sell a probably fraudulent diary of Eva Braun after the war. The diary content is rather absurd and reminds me of the play "Springtime For Hitler" in The Producers. I'm not an expert either on film or about this history, so sorry that I can't provide more detail. But hopefully this will help until a more competent reviewer comes along.

The pace of the movie and its connection to historical figures are excellent, as well as the photos of the actual protagonists at the end of the film. They all lived to an advanced age.
