The White Ribbon

144 minutes 2009 7.8

A small German society is held together by a vicious mix of oppression, violence and double standards in the time just before the outbreak of the First World War. A doctor falls off his horse because a thin steel wire is strung across the road, a woman falls through a roof and kills herself, and two children are brutally abused.
