Any legend, impervious to the arguments of reason, supported by apparently strong mass desires. LzheFridrih undoubtedly posted psychological moods prevalent among Germans.This determines the particular value of films about Frederick the Great, or rather, the value of the finished sotsialnopsihologicheskoy model, which imposed the Germans these films. Through a whole lot of "Fridrikhov" clear line passed the psychological evolution of the King of Prussia - from youthful rebellion Crown Prince to repentance and obedience.This topic is rather complex so the Germans have long been familiar. Even in "The Prince of Homburg" Kleist developed the conflict between the individual moral right to disobedience and moral obligation to submit to the authority of the government.In addition, following the example of "Spring Awakening" Wedekind, a few early expressionistic dramas defended his son revolt against his father, and at about the same time, a whole generation of young Germans rebelled against the traditional way of life in the form of an idealistic "youth movements".Highlighting the escalating rebellion in servility, films about Frederick the Great met problems of his time. The post-war situation has developed in such a way that the masses were not fully prepared for the fact that unconditionally believe in the necessity of totalitarian power. Therefore, all films about Frederick smuggles general idea roundabout.At first, they seemingly encouraged rebellious, if not revolutionary, the behavior of the Crown Prince, to win over German minds confused, but it was a blatant ploy. This behavior is the first step of the evolution that led to the complete submission.Filial rebellion, prepared in expressionistic dramas emergence of a "new man", served here only the glorification of his father's despotism. Riot in these films was like a chrysalis, from which hatches a dictator, anarchy is encouraged in them as long as it did attractive totalitarian power.These films offered his solution to the dilemma - chaos or tyranny, transforming itself in a dilemma evolutionary process. One of the natural stages of it was a riot. The legitimization of rebellion, no doubt, contributed to the prolongation of old wounds inflicted by a failed bourgeois revolution, the specter of which is particularly worried at the time the collective soul.Riot produced in social life, could only rastravit this open wound. The fact that the predicted screen turned into a reality. In the postwar period, "Movement of Young" gradually turned into the formal establishment of the organization, which will soon be disbanded; part of it absorbed the different political and religious society.And as if to demonstrate their instinctive desire to settle accounts with the painful way of the revolution, many zealous members of the "Movement of Young" had to join the Nazi marching columns. film 1942
.Moral films about Frederick the Great was to ensure unconditionally subordinate to the chaotic life of the element of absolute power. But tutti and there is a contradiction. On the one hand, the majority of Germans, especially smallholders, trying to bury the socialist ideas, insisting on an idealistic conception of the absolutely free personality.
