Did You Know?

The execution scene was, ironically, shot in a morgue. "It was a shock, especially the smell," recalls Julia Jentsch. "I'd never smelled that before. I was very uncomfortable. But the team is there, and someone eats a sandwich... It's grotesque."See more »
Continuity: In the long interrogation in the middle of the film, the pile of index cards in front of interrogator Mohr keeps moving around on the table.See more »

Bravery to death, 3 September 2005
Author: stensson from Stockholm, Sweden

German film is on its way again and this is another example. Sophie Scholl was a member of the White Rose, who distributed pamphlets against Hitler at the Munich university in 1943. That was of course suicide. Gestapo got them.

This is not only a recapitulation. Far from it. There is also a small but strong mini drama between Scholl and the Gestapo interrogator and despite the situation and what in the end can't be avoided, it's not clear who really wins that battle.

Very good acting by Julia Jentsch and Gerald Alexander Held here. A real nightmare and a perverse situation, but still taken out of life. This is not only drama. It is also possible.
