The Wave (Die Welle) is a 2008 German drama movie directed by Dennis Gansel (Before the Fall). It is based on Ron Jones' social experiment The Third Wave and Todd Strasser's novel of the same name. Rainer Wenger is a high school teacher and is supposed to explain to his students in a project week about "autocracy". It turns out that the students are of the unanimous opinion that something like National Socialism cannot be repeated today. Wenger dares an experiment: He appoints himself to be a leading figure and sets new rules and guidelines with slogans such as "Power through Discipline". The attempt starts harmless, the newly founded movement "The Wave" arrives. However, dissenters are quickly excluded, and the first acts of violence also take place away from the school grounds.
The following weapons were used in the film The Wave:
German police officers are seen with holstered SIG-Sauer P226 pistols.
Tim is seen creating the website of the group with a photoshoped revolver.
