Being gay before the war!
13 May 2018 | by M1racl3sHapp3nSee all my reviews

Life of girls in a boarding school in pre-world war II Germany. Adolescent love in a time of austerity of the heart where being gay is considered sinful. This is a remake of the original movie which came out in 1931. Outstanding interpretation by all the characters.
