Storyline

During the Second World War, a small group of students at Munich University begin to question the decisions 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>

Idealism and Courage in World War II
5 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

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.

Title (Brazil): "A Rosa Branca" ("The White Rose")
