Sad and very well done.

Die Weiße Rose is a sad, touching film. I imagine that it was popular in Europe, but it seems that nearly nobody here has seen it--a shame, really, because it is so good. Yes, there was a resistance in Germany. The movie focuses on the story of two young people involved in said resistance, an attempted feat that makes them seem like heroes to almost everybody on the planet.

But it isn't just the story that's good. That wouldn't be enough, really, since there are lots of movies which take exciting ideas and screw them up horribly. Die Weiße Rose is very well filmed, very subtle and exciting, and very sad.

Idealism and Courage in World War II

In 1943, in Munich, the student Sophie Magdalena Scholl (Lena Stolze) finds that her brother Hans Scholl (Wulf Kessler) has formed the resistance group The White Rose with three other friends of the University of Munich and they are distributing anti-Nazi pamphlets to other students and wall writing political statements against Hitler. Sophie decides to join the group and is assigned in principle to small tasks.

Meanwhile the Gestapo is investigating and hunting down the group. While distributing pamphlets in the University of Munich, Hans and Sophie are arrested by the Gestapo that also finds Christoph Probst (Werner Stocker). They are sentenced to death and beheaded in the guillotine.

"Die Weiße Rose" is a wonderful film of idealism and courage during World War II and based on a true story. I saw this film for the first time in the 80's and after watching "Sophie Scholl - Die Letzten Tage", I have decided to see it again on my rare VHS.

"Die Weiße Rose" shows the big picture about the resistance group "The White Rose" and "Sophie Scholl - Die Letzten Tage" is a dramatization of the last days of Sophie. The story about a German resistance group against the atrocity of Hitler and the Nazi is unusual and both films have many scenes in common and practically complete each other. My vote is eight.

unforgettable film honoring once-forgotten heroes

Harrowing and unforgettable, this film follows a group of mostly student resistors in Nazi Germany as they discover what their country's regime is doing to war prisoners and to Jews, and try to work out nonviolent ways to get the truth to their compatriots and resist a regime that massacres. The film seems as accurate as re-creations of history get. I had the honor of meeting three survivors of the White Rose once, in Berkeley, California, in 1992 or so when they accompanied a showing of panels and photos about the group. It is extraordinary that there was this resistance--one with much that those opposed to today's wars could learn from and emulate--yet nearly no one knew of this for decades. I remember in 1969 someone speaking of a thesis about "resistors in Nazi Germany," and when I laughed at such a seeming oxymoron, he told me, "Yes we laugh because we haven't heard of them--because nearly all of them died." See the film and see one form that courage can take.
