The film is a means to understand that we are constantly reverse in a society in which converge a number of concepts that psychology portrays social consciously or unconsciously. With regard to the concept of group, its influence is essential both for people who partake of it as the consequences that carries people outside the group, since in many cases are part of a group or belong to a group that shares similar characteristics without knowing it. In view of the membership of a group there is a serious elements that play an important role in achieving the objectives such asunder the group consisting of mankind, cohesion, the position, social, status, rules, culture, personality and behavior . All these elements will be aware in the individual directly your choice as to know that the group is pursuing goals, by that way, who make up the group, and if you feel part of group. It is also expected that each individual is represented by a group avoiding guided by mass. On this basis, it could be shown in the movie despite the decision regarding the management of power to lead a group, the decision was very rapid, so that leaves a glimpse that there was a good Individual reflective work since it is guided by the time left. The Wave is definitely a great film that provides insight on the process of power and how this will influence each of the individuals, dragging them to the end of losing their identity as members of this group in particular one week changed their way of life, by an obsessive ideology. As a final thought it may be noted that the ends go hand in hand with complexity, in this case a course which becomes wanting group through unit into something better, resulted in exactly the opposite. What was sought was a self-governing with its own rules, without falling into the errors known as suffered by the German people and the world, but both want to do things right, from time enthusiasm almost trips over the same stone. At a time when the horizon is lost, forget the main reason the union to the common good. What really summoned the course, learn together in an entertaining way. Yielding almost fanaticism for the unit and completed events very regrettable, the murder of a student, the suicide of another, and the imprisonment of teacher . In short, as society is constantly changing so this involves learning that can be understood best if not overlooked that we interrelated, that my world affects the person or draws around me. Without forgetting that together we can make great projects grow, but also remember that as human branding is also large errors can comment not in a single sphere of existence, but the whole human experience .
