inglés No matter how much propaganda is involved, the first Olympia is simply a wonderful example of how to make an interesting sports documentary, how to present athletes as real heroes, and how to work well with the camera and individual shots. Even then, Riefenstahl was already showing how slow-motion shots could be used effectively. The film literally took me back eighty years and I was rooting for the individual athletes to outdo others and themselves. ()
