A movie not only for kids
7 January 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

"Das fliegende klassenzimmer" ("The Flying Classroom") really caught the spirit of the book. If you think from the title it's only a kid's movie you're wrong. The story reaches all generations. Universal ideas like friendship and loyalty are some of the themes.

Finally a movie the whole family can watch without being afraid that there's something some kids shouldn't see.

Though it the main part plays in Leibzig the inside of the boarding school was filmed in the "Landesschule Pforta", a school which once was a monastery. The old bathroom they show is not in use anymore though... just as a secret way to get away from the teachers and visit people in other rooms...
