Edelweisspiraten / The Edelweiss Pirates (2004) DVD9
The film, which treats the last years of the war in Cologne, is introduced by former Edelweiss pirate Jean Julich, upon whose recollections the film is based. None of his former youthful comrades survived the war. Julich’s father was a member of the Communist Party, dragged off by the Nazis in 1936

Cologne-Ehrenfeld, November 1944. They're young, wild and rebellious, like young people anywhere and in any time. But working-class boys Karl and his younger brother Peter are Edelweiss Pirates. They oppose the Nazis, and are pursued by the Gestapo. With the escaped concentration camp prisoner Hans Steinbruck they plan acts of sabotage, until the Gestapo take them on with their full might. When they're arrested, Karl is torn between his will to survive, his feelings of responsibility, his love for his brother and his loyalty to the Edelweiss Pirates.
