Just how close is totalitarianism? A classroom experiment makes a terrifying test case…
Adapted from a novel in turn loosely based on real events, this is the German box office superhit of the year. A hip young teacher enlightening his class about autocracy beckons his keen charges into their own microcosm of a fascist regime – with dangerous and finally tragic consequences. This slick mix of teen angst drama and hardhitting political allegory goes all the way.
