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

Underrated gem
22 June 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I've caught this on TV the other day, so I didn't have any expectations. The title seemed interesting enough and I decided to give it a try.

A few things you should know about the movie, first, without spoiling anything. The movie starts slow, so if you're impatient, this isn't for you. It has a good reason to do so, it develops very well most of the characters, as well as the stage. The actors, the set, everything does a great job to transport you back in time to 1870's Germany. Oh, and expect some unreasonable behavior, like body punishment against children, but to a tolerable extent. This was after all, 1870's.

The characters are well developed, the stage is beautifully set. If initially I was just curious about the movie, as the time passed I started to care about the protagonists and I was literally drawn into the action. Drama is not my first choice of movie by far, but this movie impressed me because it touches mostly on the key word: "team play". It's also about fair play, choices, love, children, parenting, freedom of expression, history, as well as a story about (German) football.

I would recommend this to anyone who cares about what is right. 7/10 with a warmly recommendation.
