The Fourth Reich
Note: I am very privileged to have found access to this film. This is the 3 hour and full version of a great movie about Robey Leibbrandt and National Socialism in South Africa during WW2. Before this, you could only get the Director's cut online through shops or video-sharing platforms, which is cut in half. The credit goes to a fellow countryman of mine called Aquarius who after asking for him to upload this full version, did just that. Dankie broer.
I will include links to his youtube channel and his description:
This is a very scarce South African movie, VHS quality. 1990, by Zastron.
It is based on a true story.
The movie is neither a political or war movie. It is a tough human drama told within the context of momentous events.
An oath of blood divides the nation… in South Africa a human drama takes place that could change the course of the Second World War.
It is 1939, and the world is at war. Blacks and whites alike rush to join the Allied forces. But, thousands of Afrikaner patriots flock instead to an ultra-right wing organisation violently opposed to the British. Suddenly brother is against brother.
The Nazis, desperately short of strategic war materials, turn their attention to the only alternative source – South Africa. Hitler personally orders an operation to gain control of the country. He meets the South African boxing champion, Robey Leibbrandt, recruited by the Nazis at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. Leibbrandt’s mission is to assassinate South African Prime Minister, General Jan Smuts.
In 1941 Leibbrandt’s attempted coup is stopped by the actions of one man. Hundreds of Nazi supporters are detained all over the country. After the war some of the most prominent of these people formed the 1948 government that created Apartheid. Today’s South African Nazis fly the swastika, call their supporters to arms and openly salute Robey Leibbrandt.
No copyright infringement intended.
It is based on the book 'The Fourth Reich' by Hans Strydom.
A similar book incidentally is 'The Land God made in Anger' by
John Gordon Davis.
The first season, first episode, of the South African TV series ‘Shoreline’ also has an insert about it.
Translated German dialogue at 06:37:
You can go, mister doctor.
This man must no doubt go to hospital.
That is all, doctor.
Then, I take no responsibility.
At 14:18 'Alles gutte' is 'All the best'.
At about 01:31:00 the Afrikaans ‘Vat jou goed en Trek’ literally translated is ‘Take your stuff and trek’.
‘Alles van die beste en totsiens’ is ‘Goodbye, and everything of the best’.
‘Die vierkleur hoog’ is ‘The four colour high’, and refers to the Transvaal flag.
