Following on from the success and acclaim of last season's landmark film Downfall, comes another piece of WWII German history, approaching the subject from the opposite direction. Sophie Scholl was a real young German woman, familiar to every German schoolchild. Part of The White Rose, a secret non-violent anti-Hitler student group, she was 21 when she was arrested. Drawn almost verbatim from the transcripts between Scholl and her interrogator Robert Mohr, this features an outstanding performance from Julia Jentsch (The Edukators) as the embodiment of self belief, a belief that being young did not excuse her from resisting the Nazis.

SILVER BEAR - Best Actress & Director, Berlin 2005
