The Wave

High school teacher, Rainer Wenger, may be popular with the students, but he's also unorthodox. He's forced to teach autocracy for the school's project week. He's less than enthusiastic at first, but the response of the students is surprising to say the least. He forces the students to become more invested in the prospect of self rule, and soon the class project has its own power and eerily starts to resemble Germany's past. Can Wegner and his class realize what's happening before the horrors start repeating themselves?

Autocracy is the power of one person. A man strong and charismatic, for which people go. Which one week will be able to do the supposedly impossible thing — collect different people one managed the crowd. And in the modern world, when all "this all too educated".

Tactics are very simple those who are against the need to eliminate, you came to charge — look, you came in the clothing — out. So it develops the mass.

So, I began to wonder that it on the example of the youth which is "immature", but if all your friends and relatives suddenly entered in any group, then you sooner or later would be wrapped in there.

May not enough for many elderly people, who remember the old days? Has become too much freedom. Where to put it? To aspire to? It's easier to follow leader the objectives which he you specify.

Not think you that it says the late Mr. Wegner makes sense..?

Can it be so much was suppressed individualism of the members? Some continue to walk in his clothes, smoke, drink, have fun. And is the does not hurt to be members of the "Wave". Who suppressed the wave? The anarchists? Yeah they even have touched, and only gave a warning..

Remember how the film starts? All apart.. Strong suppress the weak, those who generally despise the weak. Paradise inequality.

In the experiment, all suddenly came to life. There were goals, rallying classmates. Disappeared inequality. The rich help the poor, strong weak. People former for equation — character.

And in the end I think it really all was so too bad...

Bright contrast in the end aims to convince the viewer in the wrongness of the authoritarian regime. But if it? After all, it is a consequence of the destruction of the "Waves".

PS: whether the party was in the win..?

Experiment 2: Wave — this is another German movie about social experiments with people, which is not really has no relation to the film "Experiment" in 2000. Just Russian distributors by accident or intended so have done it.

But these movies have something similar. And not only that in both pictures has a very different, but still social-psychological experiments. A total of what on fact, there are some same the pros and cons.

You need to say in advance that Volna in the overall scale is still has made a positive impression.

The acting is very good. The scenario in its full of intentional predictability could surprise in some degree.

The film was very atmospheric in terms of relationships and characters of individuals, but watching the behavior of masses of people in the organization Volna a strong desire to say : "No way!".

If the first "the Experiment" events were also unusual, but it but it is very likely at certain circumstances and with certain people. In "Wave" the spectacle though more earthy, but whatever it turned out to need a more specific set of people. So whether, for example, the Director of the school against what is happening, then in fact, everything would probably not. so. But still under certain circumstances it is possible, that put a stamp on that this story will.

The main plus of the film — is it ending.

"Experiment 2: Wave" how and "Experiment" very very good movie. But it is even more tightened and stretched, which, of course, not kills total artistic value.
