Thank you, Dan.Dan W. wrote: ↑20 Jun 2020 06:15Just have to agree with your take on both of these excellent movies, enjoyed both of them very much. Sophie Scholl - The Final Days, if you have not seen it, is absolute must viewing. It is an extremely powerful movie and is the kind of film that will linger in your memory for many, many months, and perhaps more importantly, is a film that you will never forget, so powerful are the performances. It certainly ranks near the top of my favorite films.Sejanus wrote: ↑13 Feb 2020 09:07Since this is a German WWII forum, here are some noteworthy works I have not seen mentioned yet in this tread that are related to the NS period, I found them all to be excellent:
Flame & Citron (some sources indicate this was first released in 2008, others in 2009), about Danish resistance fighters during WWII. Portraying the two resistance fighters the film follows as not necessarily heroic and morally ambiguous gives the film a more realistic approach. Be careful whom you trust!
Sophie Scholl - The Final Days (2005), about the real life Sophie Scholl and the members of the White Rose resistance group shortly prior to and after their arrest by the Gestapo, and what happened next. Among the excellent casting is André Hennicke as the emaciated, nearly frothing-at-the-mouth-gone-berzerk Peoples Court Judge Roland Freisler (acting in just the same haranguing way Friesler behaved in real life judging by newsreel footage produced by the Nazis during numerous trials I have seen, including that of the July 20 plotters).
