  • pepoire's rating of the film The White Rose

    I feel like this movie primed me to expect a different ending from the one provided, but I loved it anyway. The music is great, the characters are endearing, and I had not previously realised that Mohamed Abdel Wahab, aside from being a great singer and composer, was also a SUPER MEGA DREAMBOAT, so if u have eyesight and an appreciation for dreamy men then probably definitely watch this right this minute (trust me).
