The film is narrated from the perspective of a third person, although particular scenes provide individual characters' subjective points of view. Die welle" should be seen as a cautionary tale by serious minded individuals thanks to the inspired film by Dennis Gansel. Inspired by a 1960's social experiment in California documenting how easy it is to influence individuals, film looses track in its middle section as it begins to refocus on the individual lives of the students. He made the film in a way that should have a “seductive effect” on the viewers to make them interested in The Wave and by doing so show the powerful attraction such a movement can have.

Wenger suggests a uniform of a white shirt and jeans, to remove class distinction and further unite the group. Afterwards, the German Federal Film Board (FFA) and the German Federal Film Fund (DFFF) as well as other co-producers decided to subsidize the project. Speaking of being all over brings us to the climax and it's not spoiling to mention that the film's conclusion is far more melodramatic than that of the actual Third Wave, though fair to add, by no means beyond the bounds of credibility. The critics don't see a stringent necessity for the students, why they should join the movement at all, because their commitment to conformity is not imaginable in West Germany today.You really get to know the characters in the film and it really tugs at your heart strings at the end.

Especially the film clip in which the Wave-supporters spray their logo on buildings, is staged in the style of a music video. With such a controversial subject, the whole thing gets out of hand with the pupils succumbing to the autocratic fascist methodology with grave consequences. What The Wave generated was a major role for the great majority, who stayed quiet and just got through school.It's when people use these goodly aims to form radical armies bent on purging, "cleansing," or otherwise harming those who don't think like them, that makes a movement into a gang. In Germany there has always existed the great misunderstanding that politics in the world of cinema were synonymous with boredom,” says Gansel. As a consequence, Todd Strasser, whose novel popularized the material in Germany, and the publisher Ravensburg, did not receive direct revenues from the film project.
