      Pumkijn D Very good! The courtroom scene was my favorite part. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/04/23 Full Review georgan g The acting is so good in this film, that even if you never watch subtitles, I suggest you try this. The interrogation and trial are from actual records, not dialog written for a movie. Intense & inspiring! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Wolfgang G Ein großes spiel, Marc Rothemund. Überzeugende Darsteller besonders Julia Jentsch die, die Sophie Scholl überzeugend spielt, und André Hennicke der den „Roland Freisler" darstellt. Der Film erzählt uns die Letzen Tage von Sophie Scholl. Das Drehbuch (Fred Breinersdorfer) basiert auf die Vernehmungsprotokolle und Zeugenaussagen der Angehörigen. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/21/22 Full Review Audience Member Good idea, but poorly acted - especially by Julia Jentsch herself, which looks hesitant and inexpressive through the whole movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member A good movie. Kept it subtle, very german. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member An incredible story of what to do when the entire world goes insane around you.

      David Parkinson Empire Magazine Compelling in its depiction of quiet heroism, this testament to the power of passive resistance is made all the more authentic and poignant by the superbly controlled performance of Julia Jentsch. Rated: 4/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Peter Rainer Christian Science Monitor The realization that we are, in many instances, listening in on actual proceedings gives the film an immediacy that no dramatist could hope to match. Rated: B Oct 14, 2006 Full Review Jessica Winter Time Out The film holds few surprises, though it builds a remarkable level of suspense during the fait-accompli interrogation scenes, and is a well-intended commemoration of a courageous young woman. Jun 24, 2006 Full Review Sarah Boslaugh TheArtsStl Jentsch ... delivers a powerfully understated performance appropriate to her character’s conviction that truth is stronger than even the most horrenduously unjust regime. Rated: 8/10 Feb 27, 2024 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com A compelling and disturbing drama based upon the final six days in the life of a young woman who did the unthinkable. Rated: 3.5/4.0 Sep 24, 2020 Full Review Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed A very tense study of the last days of Nazism, and a worthy homage to a true heroine...
