Storyline

In Wittelbacherpalais, Munich's prison and Gestapo center, middle-aged Else Gebel awaits trial for carrying anti-Nazi material. She serves as a clerk in the Gestapo office. On Thursday, 18 February 1943, two youths arrive at the prison, arrested for carrying anti-Reich pamphlets and suspected of dropping leaflets from the university tower and painting anti-Hitler signs along Ludwigstraße: Sophie, 21, and her brother Hans, 24 and back from the Russian front. Sophie is housed with Else, and for five days, as Sophie is interrogated and charges brought, the women form a bond based on simple interactions: poetry, tea, shared clothing, courage, love of freedom, and a promise Else gives Sophie.

Great movie about youth.
11 January 1999 | by (Philadelphia, Pa. USA) – See all my reviews

Outstanding film. More like a play than a movie. Coupled with the excellent movie, "The White Rose", this film adds to the tale of Sophie Scholl and the underground student resistance movement at Munich University in 1942 - 1943. The acting is superb. And from what I have found out through interviews of people who were there; realistic. This film is easy to find in Philadephia at TLA. Hopefully, it is easy to find elsewhere.
