Storyline

The Final Days is the true story of Germany's most famous anti-Nazi heroine brought to life. Sophie Scholl is the fearless activist of the underground student resistance group, The White Rose. Using historical records of her incarceration, the film re-creates the last six days of Sophie Scholl's life: a journey from arrest to interrogation, trial and sentence in 1943 Munich. Unwavering in her convictions and loyalty to her comrades, her cross-examination by the Gestapo quickly escalates into a searing test of wills as Scholl delivers a passionate call to freedom and personal responsibility that is both haunting and timeless.

Trivia

Some scenes were filmed at the University of Munich, the original location where Sophie and Hans Scholl had been arrested. The square in front of the university's main building is called "Geschwister-Scholl-Platz". See more »

Goofs

During the interrogation in which Sophie refers to the mentally ill children: When the interrogator shouts "God does not exist!" and moves to the window, the camera views Sophie from the side. At this stage, her left elbow is on the table, with her left hand hanging down. She then places her right hand on the table. When the camera angle shifts to the front view, her left hand is suddenly on the table, and her right hand is not yet on the table. She lifts it up to push the coffee cup away. See more »

How would YOU make Sophie Scholl?
23 October 2005 | by (Russia) – See all my reviews

As a person who spent many years 'making art', I could not be more amazed reading some of the comments. I've just been to a preview of Sophie Scholl in Manchester, England; and I am not only glad that this movie has been made, but also that it is done at the time when young people are happier to do 'whatever' rather than have any principles.

There is no point debating historical accuracy. As it followed from the Q&A session with Marc Rothemund following the preview, not only the filming took place at the original locations that are still there, but the crew went at great length doing things 'right', including getting the weather reports for February 1943. Yes, there is this strange feeling of looking at the film's title, which sounds like the title for a documentary. But then I didn't gather the impression that Rothemund's goal was to poeticise the story of Sophie Scholl. I think it is quite enough that in Germany she is perceived as a martyr. What Sophie Scholl

  • Die Letzten Tage does successfully is it shows a person behind the
image, a young girl (younger than myself), who was prepared to die for her idea, but desperately loved life.

I read critical comments, and mine was in part sparked by them. Far from trying to debate their correctness, I'll do exactly what I always do on these occasions. Guys, those of you who decide to write next dismissive drag, instead tell us how you would direct in Rothemund's place. Or how would you act in place of Julia Jentsch? If you have really valid suggestions, we'll all be happy to hear.
