blogging at the local library - it's free! wonder why anyone bothers to use internet cafes. Spent the morning sorting out stuff and tidying up the place as people were coming to view at 1.15. Went off and had picnic on Wandsworth Common with the kids, lovely blue skies, big white clouds passing over, sunshine intermittent, grassy scents, and made the acquaintance of a beautiful chocolate brown Labrador puppy.

Were talking about the White Rose Movement and what a good movie it would make. What was that, asks Mo. Told him it was 3 students in Nazi Germany who resisted the Nazis for the length of time it takes to cyclostyle a few leaflets, hand them out, get arrested and executed. So more of a tic than a movement, really.

Went out and had a bit too much drink last night with the people from work (bonding).

Sounds like a short film.

Four films have been made about the White Rose Movement. The most recent Sophie Scholl – Die letzten Tage (Sophie Scholl: The Final Days), (Feb 2005, nominated for Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in Jan 2006), I read a review of which thought very well of it, but I can't find the review now.

The other three I came across while searching for the review: Das Verspechen (The Promise) (1970s), Fünf letzte Tage ((The) Last Five Days) (1982), Die Weiße Rose (The White Rose) (1982) [courtesy Wikipedia]

"Sophie Scholl" is a decent film. Better, I think, is the film about Germany's triumph at the 1954 World Cup, "The Miracle of Bern", more a consideration of post-WWII adjustment than a football film. And you never reported back whether you got around to watching "As Far As My Feet WIll Carry Me".

I did watch As Far As My Feet Will Carry Me and can report that the leading man is a big hunk of Aryan manhood.

I've been trying to locate that east Asian nomadic tribe who like to ensure the health of their stock by inviting hunky westerners to do it with their daughters with film-star looks.
