The Wave Trailer


Rainer Wenger is a teacher who's always strived for the best for his students, but when his students start to enquire how the German nation could succumb to the power of the Nazi's, he struggles to find the words to explain fully, instead he decides to show the students how a totalitarian government can take control. What starts out as a simple experiment - making his students stand when they address the rest of the class, walk to their seats in an orderly manner soon warps into something beyond his control.

As more and more students are taken in by 'the wave', initially he sees the project as a good teaching process, his class are paying more attention in lessons and their attitude towards school is a lot more positive, and soon even kids outside of Wenger's class are getting involved with the new practices. However as more and more kids become involved with the movement, the few students who do not wish to become involved are soon seen as outsiders and ostracised from many official and unofficial activities at school.

Before The Fall Review


Weak
I am officially done with World War II movies, especially if they center on Nazis. Sick and tired doesn't even begin to tell you where I am at with these movies. There are billions of other important events that haven't gotten a quarter of the attention Nazis have, and it won't stop until movies about 9/11 start coming out. Come on, guys, do a little research and I'm sure you'll find another time where humans were really evil to other humans. There's nothing that terrifying in Dennis Gansel's tepid Before the Fall, but I don't mean that as a compliment.

There have been movies made about Nazi dentists (Marathon Man), Nazi secretaries (Blind Spot), and even one about a Jewish Nazi (Henry Bean's astonishing The Believer). Now, we are treated to the story of a Nazi boxer. Well, not exactly. Friedrich (Max Riemelt) hasn't really decided where his intentions are; his father is lenient and could very well be a communist, but he lives in Berlin during the height of Nazism. His ability as a boxer gets him an invite to the Napola School, an institute that says it's for exceptional students but is actually a place that strips German youth of individuality and pity to draft more for the Nazi effort. While there, he makes friends with the sharp, poetic Albrecht (Tom Schilling), the son of a German Gauleiter (It's pretty much a mayor, but saying it in German makes me sound smarter). They form a tight bond, but Friedrich also finds support and acceptance with his boxing coach, Albrecht's father, and most of the other students. It's these two forces that are in constant battle throughout the film and that make for all the emotional and moral fireworks that make up most of its storyline.
