I recommend this film strongly to anyone with a genuine love of cinema
What is there to possibly say about a film with such depth, such breadth and such vision? Bringing to mind the work of a young Howard Hawks, the breathtaking scope of the 1938 Girls' School leaves this reviewer baffled as to the lack of attention it received from that year's Academy Awards - perhaps the consequence of being light years ahead of its time in both theme and content. Even so, the incredible, timeless cinematography should have made it a cast-iron certainty for recognition.
Perhaps it was also a consequences of the Academy's well-known reluctance to recognize comedic brilliance, as few films can have tickled the ribs of so many as this work of outstanding genius.
I recommend this film strongly to anyone with a genuine love of avant-garde cinema, and anyone who wants to see a sure fire winner for all the family.
