Sundance announced it’s competition films earlier today. I noticed an interesting German entry called THE WAVE. I read the Sundance press release and recognized the title and plot instantly. I remembered seeing a TV movie of the same name back when I was in middle school. I found it odd that Sundance didn’t give nods to the American film that preceded it. There’s a link to view the American film in its entirety on this fan site hosted in Turkey. They mis-credit the director as being Norman Lear (The Jeffersons). The true director is Alexander Grasshoff (FUTURE SHOCK). I remember that American film pretty well cause they taught it in Hebrew school. Anybody else see the original?
