Storyline

The young teacher Konrad Koch is hired to teach English at a strictly-run German school for boys in 1874. The reform-minded headmaster von Merfeld has hired Koch as one of the very first English teachers of all at a German secondary school in order to let a fresh new wind into his musty institution. Koch sees how badly this is needed in his very first class. Everything that the boys know about England is common prejudices handed down from one generation to the next. In order to stir up some enthusiasm for the foreign language, Oxford graduate Koch resorts to unusual means and introduces his students to a curious sport that comes from Britain: football. Unfortunately, Koch's unconventional ways soon make him many enemies: influential parents, local dignitaries and, above all, his colleagues, who only believe in Prussian drills and discipline. They all want to get rid of Koch at any price. But then his students take the initiative... Written by Anonymous

Appealing period school drama.
16 October 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Someone explain to me why a film about an advocate of the British way of life teaching soccer to pre WW1 German school kids should be more plausible and involving that Robin Williams extolling the virtues of poetry to his lot. That doesn't compute but it's a fact.

Handsome costume movie production values. Strong performances and a feeling of connection with wider events battle the film's predictable situation and development.

Brühl gets better every film and could become a major player. The rest are unfamiliar. It will be interesting to see if any of them realise the potential shown here.
