User Reviews

Great learning tool.
24 December 2006 | by dfroburgSee all my reviews

This movie is a good tool for learning German. I came across it in a university class, and in keeping with typical children's literature, the reading is slow and clear, so that you catch every word, and there is enough context to guess the word you don't know, and the plot is simple enough that even if you don't speak German, you know what is going on. The moral is in line with "the grass is always greener", but woven into the story in an interesting fashion so kids wont think they are learning. My girlfriend loves the pictures, they are pretty conductive to impressing girlfriends of German students. The voices are super exaggeratively expressive, so its hard not to laugh during the movie. If you are taking intermediate German at the university level, or have a girlfriend or both, you need to see this. I remember that this came out in the 1970's on a similar type of show to Reading Rainbow, which makes sense. The movie wasn't animated, but rather a kind of setup where they only show the page from the book, while the narrator tells what they are saying ans such.
