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 movie
20 January 2001 | by ixsSee all my reviews

The movie "Schule" (School) shows a part of the life of a small group of students, enjoying the last days before graduation.

It happens that I visited the movie with some friends of mine from school and we had to agree that the movie did in fact catch the feeling we had at the time of graduation. To every character in the movie, whether it be the A-student or the "loverboy", we could remember the exact counterpart in our own class.

But also the contrast between feeling free and the uncertainity what will happen after graduation and where all the friends will go was shown in the film.

I think the movie is a realistic portrait of this time, on the one hand making one laugh and on the other hand saddening us.
