Description
"Insightful, affecting, and tightly realized," wrote Screen Daily of this 2003 German film. Winner of a special jury prize at Sundance, it focuses on an awkward young woman who finds it hard to fit in at her new teaching post in a city school. In German with English subtitles.

"This tartly comic tale of teachers on the verge of a nervous breakdown is not only Maren Ade's marvellous first feature, it was her film school graduation piece. In following first-time teacher Melanie (Eva Löbau) and her disastrous attempts at forging both a new career and social life, Ade demonstrates more maturity and insight than many other, more experienced directors.... For a first film, it's accomplished; for a college project, it's astonishing."—BBC

"One of the best movies about the travails of being a teacher since Une semaine de vacances 26 years ago."—The Guardian

"Equally adept at sidestepping genre expectations and creating an atmosphere of oddly bracing bleakness."—Variety
