Critic Reviews for Mädchen in Uniform (Girls in Uniform) (Maidens in Uniform)
The plot mechanics are predictable, but the atmosphere and sensitivity to teenage fears are not: stage actress Leontine Sagan brings an exceptionally warm touch to her depiction of female friendships.
Based on a play by Christa Winsloe, performed by an all-woman cast, independently made, and cooperatively financed, this was one of the few genuine women's films of the 30s.
Audience Reviews for Mädchen in Uniform (Girls in Uniform) (Maidens in Uniform)
it's a touching and lovely film and not as explicit as it's reputation might suggest tho it's historical importance probably cannot be overstated. it can be seen on youtube starting here: http://youtu.be/duXOgKt0qO0
This film is not about sex among lesbian schoolgirls. No "hot girl on girl action". It's a touching story of a lonely teenage girl who develops a crush on her older female teacher. Very well-made, as most 1930s German films are, IMHO. Haven't seen it in years, and when/if I get to see it again, I'll write a more complete review.
