A great film made about when the hard schoolsystem ended
The film is somehow scary, and I can't help myself for laughing at the stupid teacher, who is the character which you should feal sorry for. Even if the film is from 1968 it reminds me about my own time in school with old teachers, teaching the old way. A great film.
