In an attempt to engage his students in politics, a high school teacher takes the controversial decision to turn the classroom into a Nazi-style dictatorship. But what starts out as an innocent social experiment ends in tragedy when the roots of fascism begin to take hold of the students. Before long, notions of discipline and community give way to more sinister methods of intimidation and violence as the movement grows in power. Can the teacher quell the wave before it engulfs the entire school? Based on actual events, THE WAVE is a gripping drama that delves deep into the fascist mindset, exposing all its flaws and contradictions through the characters' newly-adopted behaviours and attitudes.

Good film and good spot.

weird that there's a German film about an American book to illustrate the sweep of national socialism in Germany to high school kids. Good book BTW haven't read it since school but it stuck with me!

I think the point of the movie is that Fascism, given the right circumstances, would rise anywhere. Good movie, hot price.
