The Wave DVD Review



Synopsis: Germany today. During project week, a popular and unorthodox high school teacher, in an attempt to stir up his lethargic students, devises an experiment that will explain what totalitarianism is and how it works. What begins with harmless notions about discipline and community builds into a real movement: The Wave. Within days, The Wave s uniformly attired students begin ostracizing and threatening others, and violence boils just below the surface. Sensing danger, the teacher decides to break off the experiment. But it may be too late The Wave has taken on a life of its own and is out of control. Based on a true story, THE WAVE chillingly shows just how easily the seeds of fascism can be sown.

Review: The Wave is a fantastic german film that shows us the dangers of modern day facism.  In the day and age when the tea party has emerged and racism is on the rise, we can see splinter factions coming up in politics again.  If you couple that with a precarious economic situation you can quickly invite in a terrible regime in exchange for some security.  The Wave is a fantastic look into what could happen if things got out of control.  A great watch and very relevant.

Interest Range: Drama
