The fastest and easiest way to describe “The White Ribbon” is to call it a German version of “The Children of The Corn”. The long description goes like this: In 1913 a small German town is victimized by anonymous acts of violence. The town is owned by The Baron (Ulrich Tukur) who employs the majority of the town’s villagers. The town appears normal, but it’s surprising how drastically the characters unravel once the violence starts.

The first incident happens very quickly, the town doctor (Rainer Bock) is out riding his horse, and is thrown when the horse falls over a tripwire that someone has placed on the riding path. The doctor breaks his collar bone and is transported to another town for medical attention. This event triggers a reign of terror that will continue to grip this small town until the onset of World War I. — more
