Julia Jentsch, as: Sophie Scholl.
on 18 June 2017
This is one of the finest film's that i have ever seen. Infact, i watch it regularly.
Julia Jentsch should have won an 'Oscar' for her performance. I put it down to British/American prejudice against non-English speaking film's.
Also, i was very impressed by the performance of Andre Hennicke, as: Roland Freisler. The ranting, raving, carpet-chewing, former Communist.
My only gripe about this film is the portrayal of her time in detention. The Gestapo are, almost, portrayed as: Dixon of Dock Green. From what I understand, Ms Scholl was treated brutally. She attended 'Court', bearing sign's of her injuries.
For the record, the Gestapo was made up of former street-thug's. They were real warrior's when it came to tormenting disabled folk, the elderly, and women. However, I doubt if many of these fella's even had the gut's to go out by themselves, on a Friday night, and buy themselves a pint.
The world is full of fascist's but, these day's, they don't wear a swastika on their arm...
Don't let anyone tell you how to think, dress, and speak.
The inner/outer beauty of Sophie Scholl is perfectly portrayed, by: Julia Jentsch.
