Marc Rothemund, Julia Jentsch and the White Rose

GreenCineStaff's picture

You mention political movies. Being apolitical seems to be an acceptable defense for repressive governments such as the Nazis. After making this film, what are your attitudes toward people or filmmakers who claim they are apolitical?

Rothemund: Apolitical is always bad. That is why I appreciate the White Rose members. You need to know what is behind political slogans and the politicians who tell you something. As a member of a modern society, you are obliged to be interested in the fate of people and not blame foreigners for your own situation. You should be curious about politicians and vote and take responsibility for each individual of society and society itself. If you profit without being interested in where the money comes from, like Hitler, than you are guilty. Hitler killed the Jews, took their money - the gold out of their teeth - and gave it to Germans of position. They didn't want to know where the money came from. If more people had been interested in Bush's slogans about weapons of mass destruction...

Do you see a comparison between Hitler and Bush?

Rothemund: No because Hitler killed his own people. Bush is an imperialist but I would never compare the two. Bush is not killing his own people. He did send soldiers to war but I would never compare them.

The film is serious for about 90 minutes and then we get the trial with its gallows-like humor. Should we be laughing at the absurdity of the situation?

Rothemund: The audience does not know how to compensate their own feelings watching Sophie's impending death. But if they laugh, it's a matter of a lack of compensation for the emotional journey they've shared with Sophie. Actually, they have footage of the real trial judge and you just can't believe him. He's like a puppet.

What do you think about these interviews? Do you think they serve the film or do you think the film should just serve itself?

Rothemund: For me, these interviews allow me to tell so many stories I could not tell in the movie. I think these interviews confirm the truth of the story. The White Rose wanted people to think and this movie should make people want to think. If the movie makes people think, then I think we have served the idea of the White Rose. If it opens the eyes of two or three Nazis, the movie is worthwhile.

Jentsch: I think the movie has to speak for itself. But I have learned the marketing necessity of having to talk about it [laughs].
