Rotations, released in 1949, is one of the most important German movies ever made. The story of a family divided over the World War II, this movie tells the tale of a father and son fighting on opposite sides. When Hans Behnke's (Paul Esser) career as a mechanic starts going downhill, he considers joining the Nazi Party to earn money and advance his career. After his Jewish neighbors are hauled away to a concentration camp his views on the war start to change. Not willing to look the other way, Hans starts printing resistance leaflets. When his son Hellmuch (Karl Heinz Deickert), a member of the Hitler Youth, discovers his father's crime, he turns his back on his family and turns him in to the authorities. Hans ends up being moved into a concentration camp and, it isn't until after the war that father and son are reunited. Directed by Wolfgang Staudte, Rotations is a story of courage and standing up for what you believe in, regardless of the risks.moreless
