Review this movie
Aug 24, 2010Anti-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.
Rock solid performances by up-and-coming German actress Julia Jentsch as Sophie and Alexander Held ("Downfall") as Mohr along with an excellent cast of supporting players insure that no one mistakes this for a lifeless docu-drama.
An ace performance by 26-year-old Julia Jentsch ("The Edukators," "Snowland"), as the quietly determined Munich student who was beheaded for distributing counter-propaganda leaflets in 1943, gives pic a focused dramatic power.
