The Wave (Die Welle) (2010)
A high school teacher in Germany tinkers with the explosive subject of totalitarianism with a class project that first appears innocuous enough, but quickly threatens to grow out of control. Could a simple lesson in the mechanics of fascism prove seductive enough to actually revive the worst impulses of human nature? Inspired by a 1967 California school experiment, this gripping film stars Jurgen Vogel, Frederick Lau. 107 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: German Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: English (SDH), Spanish; interviews; behind-the-scenes footage; theatrical trailer. In German with English subtitles.
