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>

Th e Best German Language Film I've ever Seen...including "Das Boot" and Schtonk!
22 July 2011 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

The movie is well crafted, well acted and beautifully filmed. The story is engrossing and disturbing. This is a story about the greatest German heroes of WWII, including Von Stauffenberg (who was a senior military officer, performing his duty to protect Germany). I don't know why this movie has not received more attention or been shown outside of Germany.

The story is about a group of young students, led by a young brother and sisters, Hans and Sophie Scholl, and their professor, Kurt Huber, who opposed the terrible actions of the Nazis and the Hitler regime. The ending is known and inevitable, but tension throughout the film is so intense, that the viewer will want to stop watching, but can't. Maybe the film would get more attention if the director, Michael Verhoeven, would remake it in English, but it wouldn't be netter. On the contrary, the German language makes it an even better experience and contributes considerably to the tension.
