Storyline

During the Second World War, a small group of students at Munich University begin to question the decesions and sanity of Germany's Nazi government. The students form a resistance cell which they name the "White Rose" after a newsletter that is secretly distributed to the student body. At first small in numbers and fearful of discovery, the White Rose begins to gain massive support after a Nazi Gauleiter nearly incites a student riot after a provokative speech. At this point, the matter is taken over by the German Gestapo, who pledge to hunt down and destroy the members of the White Rose. Written by Anthony Hughes <husnock31@hotmail.com>

Sad and very well done.
28 September 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

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.
