Sophie Scholl R2 SE in March

ICA Projects have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Sophie Scholl (Special Edition) on 16th March 2009 priced at £19.99 RRP. Echoing Downfall’s contemplation of the darkest period of Germany’s history, the award winning Sophie Scholl is a heartbreaking drama, based on real life events and the activities of the White Rose resistance group.

This 2-Disc Special Edition arrives several months after the film debuted on Blu-ray Disc where it enjoyed a wealth of bonus features. All 2hrs and 30minutes of that extra content is included on the second disc of this SE. Unfortunately disc one is no different to the existing single-disc DVD release, which presents the film in non-anamorphic widescreen with German DD2.0 audio and permanent English subtitles.

The new extras are:

  • Behind-the-Scenes of the Production – ‘Making of Sophie Scholl’ Multi-part documentary (55mins)
  • 12 Deleted and Alternate Scenes (36mins)
  • Historical Interviews:
    • Franz Muller (White Rose Member) & Walter Gebel (nephew of Sophie Scholl’s cellmate Else Gebel) (19mins)
    • Will Mohr (son of Inspector Mohr) (7mins)
    • Elisabeth Hartnagel (Sister of Sophie and Hans Scholl with archive trial footage) (30mins)
  • Trailer
