Uber alles in der Welt / Above All in the World (1941) DVD5
Nazi cinema produced numerous WW2 military epics, one of the most impressive of which is Ufa's first-rate 1941 production, Uber Alles in der Welt,directed by Karl Ritter (Stukas). Ritter customarily produced morale-building propaganda pictures, and this, his first propaganda film to deal with the war, as well as his finest effort, was one of the highest-grossing pictures of the Third Reich. Set largely in France, England, and Spain, the film chronicles the plight of Germans caught by the outbreak of war and their frantic attempts to return to the Fatherland to join the battle. All of Germany's enemies receive equal disdain. The British, the French, the Poles, and the Jews are portrayed respectively as warmongers, profiteers and cowards. In the end, all that is important is returning to Germany. As Ritter put it in Ufa's pressbook, Uber Alles in der Welt presents "a dynamic apotheosis of the certainty of German victory" in the fight "forced upon" the German nation and the German peoples' resistance against the dark powers in enemy camps.
