Die Welle (The Wave)

Rating – ****


Smart, ruthless, and efficient. Yes, this is a German film. The Wave is best described as a blend of Dead Poets Society and Battle Royale, with a dash of Fight Club. The concept is simple but surprisingly gripping. Could a group of modern democratic German school children become a monstrous Nazi mob with just a small push in the right direction? The answer…see for yourself.
