Critic Reviews

  1. Powerfully rendered in every respect - and another testament to how bad the Nazis are for drama.

    After she's forced to confess, director Marc Rothemund doesn't have much to do but marvel at her heroic defiance, and the film is overtaken by its talkiness, claustrophobia, and polarized morality.

    For most U.S. audiences, Sophie Scholl: The Final Days, an Academy Award nominee for best foreign language film, is going to feel more like a history lesson than a movie.

    Anti-war protesters get caught delivering flyers in a University. Get arrested, interrogated, then on trial.

    Quite intense dialogue throughout but very well acted & shot. Every film I've seen Julia Jentsch she has been brilliant & this is no exception. A mention too for Alexander Held as the cold yet angry Mohr.
    You sort of expect what's going to happen but does leave you feeling empty at the end.
