    It's not every coming-of-age film that has a half paralysed kid at a boarding school & a scene with the soggy biscuit game! It's actually a really nice heart-warming story about a group of friends, all with their own issues & it's done really well. Great modern world cinema.

    Un film de pensionnat sur le passage a l'age adulte assez classique mais "sympathique", avec un excellent casting.

    I love the book very much. They focus on buddy friendship more then teenager life, the film is just ok for me. They got quiet good actors in there, some of them are raising young stars in Germany now.

    A touching coming-of-age movie about a 16 year old crippled german boy, who comes to a strict boarding school, and tries despereately to fit in, make friends, find true love and all that! We have all been insecure teenagers, feeling lost and un-cool, so this movie will take you down memory lane!
