not only for Kästner-Fans!!!

Since I'm a huge Erich Kästner fan, I have the three movies of "das fliegende Klassenzimmer" that were ever done. The script of the first one (1954) was even written by Kästner himself. So it's the closest to the book, of course. There was just this part were they run over the ice and slip all the time. It's supposed to be dramatic, but it's just stupid and disturbs... The second one took place in Bamberg in 73 and the idea of setting it into summertime was really good. They changed the snowball fight into a 'normal' fight, which was really good made. But that Ulli jumped out of a window of the third floor (I think it was the third...) with an umbrella was unrealistic and over-dramatic, too... but I never new which one I like more... Then I heard that they wanna make a new one, and I wondered, how they wanna set it into this time. There are hardly any boys boarding schools in Germany anymore, but the idea of putting the play into the Thomaner school was genius! (By the way: in this version it's winter again and the snowball fight is a snowball fight^^) And that they reeranged the play into some kind of a rap-musical in the future-space was good, too! Because with it, they could not only create the past difficulties of Justus (Ulrich Noethen) and Nichtraucher (Sebastian Koch) with the DDR, but it also appealed more with the new generation. The acting was awesome, but I have to say that Hauke Diekamp (Jonathan Trotz) was the most incredible. Not only his acting was very convincing, but it was the first time he acted at all, what is not to believe after watching this movie. All in all, the newest "fliegende Klassenzimmer" is an awesome movie, which everyone should watch once in his life (not only Kästner fans!)

Better than expected!

I went into this movie knowing it was good. But it was better! It is a movie for children as well as their parents. Everything in it is brilliant. Let's start with the acting. Sebastian Koch as the Nichtraucher (non-smoker) and Ulrich Noethen as Iustus are perfect in their roles. Especially Sebastian Koch is very convincing. The child-actors do a very good job and the rest of the cast is also perfect, not to mention the very funny Piet Klocke as Professor Kreuzkamm. The screenplay is very good, the writers succeeded in eliminating all clichés. They did not simply turn Erich Kästners bestseller into a very good movie, the matter was also updated to fit in our time. Germany's unification is now part of the storyline of two characters in the movie. Camera and direction is above average and give the movie a good look. I enjoyed the movie, and so will you. Go and see it.

The ever lasting story

The third display of Erich Kästner's classic "Das Fliegende Klassenzimmer" passes through some perceivable changes. The story adopts clever into the modern time era, still keeping the tragic elements of the divided Germany alive in the form of past memories. But, nevertheless it seems that the real punch-line of Kästners story was lost somewhere throughout the attempt to adjust the characters and main story to our time. The deep emotional fracture, and the virtue of the historical background story aren't quite noticeable. Both crucial elements of Kästners novel - not only the carefully designed historical ballast and action but also the in-tensed psychological element, that clearly incorporation of the partitioned boarding school in the characters of Bökh and Kreuzkamm, together loose their meaning and significance. Also, like with the most movies made by a novel/book, the complexity of the single characters develops only in limited directions. On the other side, the persuasive performances by all the main actors, and the fact that across the movie all unnecessary clichés we used to see in such teenage movies do not appear, leads to a positive evaluation of this movie. It certainly is both delightful and interesting to see how Kästners story and imagination after decades have past, at least in some basic outlines
