Bursting with idealism, Melanie Pröschle, a young teacher from the countryside, starts her first job at a high school in the city. Desperate to fulfil her hopes, Melanie intends to do everything the right way. Politely, she introduces herself to her neighbors with homemade schnapps. At her first day of school, she gives a very ambitious speech for her colleagues. She wants to be a "fresh breeze" to the school. But, as Melanie copes with loneliness, established teachers and ninth grade students, it is not easy to start a new life.

I liked this movie. If you've ever taught kids in 7th to 9th grade you can relate to her hellish job. The parent who thought her brat's horrible behavior was the teacher's fault is very typical, sadly. The ending vexed me, though. I thought the worst was going to happen, then I wondered if it DID happen, and the almost spiritual/fantastic ending was a metaphor for that tragic event I was predicting. Definitely worth watching!

Sad. Sad. Sad. I haven't cringed this much in a long time, but I couldn't look away from the train wreck I knew was coming. Extremely well acted.

This movie really bored me and it was really hard to get through it. I did not like it.
