The inhabitants of the fictional German town of Eichwald lead incredibly sad and messed up lives. That’s the basic gist of The White Ribbon. Playing out like some sort of morality tale set in pre-World War I Germany, this is one depressing and unsettling film. The men in power in the village, namely a doctor, a pastor, and a baron, rule through manipulation and fear, while the children of the town appear to seethe with barely subdued rage just below the surface.
