Marianna S. (Angeloudi) from HOLIDAY, FL
Reviewed on 2/18/2013...
Just watched a very good German movie called "Die Welle" ("The Wave") which had been recommended to me by one of my students in French III. It was about an experiment that took place in the US in the 1960s about how students could be led to fascism and manipulated by someone in power. This version takes place in modern-day Germany at a high school where a popular teacher leads his students into a movement. First they learn discipline, rules, adopt a uniform, then a handshake, then they begin ostracizing and threatening others who fail to conform. Asks a lot of unanswered questions, namely, could it ever happen again? Disturbingly, the answer is yes.
