Storyline

The last three weeks of school life have begun: After the Abitur, Germany's leaving certificate, the friends and schoolmates of Gymnasium Kerkheim (Kerkheim High) will not see each other again so soon. It is a hard time for Markus and his girl Sandra from a lower grade, as he wants to hang out with his old friends, whereas she wants him to be there for her. It's an even harder time for Dirk, who is to be expelled from school if he fails the math exam that is coming up around midday, and it is the hardest time for Michael, who is a perfect pupil, but has no fun in life at all - and doesn't even know it yet. When Steven calls out a party to celebrate his letter of exemption from the army, they all get together for one of the last real cool events ever. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

A realistic view on German school graduates, but still comedy!
11 September 2007 | by (Würzburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is really a good movie! I, myself passed Abitur just three years ago and saw it two or three months before the final exams took place - and well: It struck like lightning! The basic message of the movie, that there's just a small amount of time left for you to be with your friends and to live a life without the problems of the adult world, hit exactly the point. This movie helped me, to make the best out of these last days in school!

Some comments complain about the stereotyped characters, but hey! it's still comedy and stereotypes are part of it. (if you don't agree, read about it in Aristoteles'"Poetik".)

Also the characters are really nice and you can quite identify yourself (not with the stereotypes,but) with some behavior that is depicted.

After all I have to say that SCHULE is a really good movie with excellent actors, camera and soundtrack and an fantastic tension (the scene on the schools' roof at dawn!!!)

Watch and let it have a place in your heart! - It deserves it!!!
