In a Prussian boarding school for girls, where everything is ‘verboten’, a vulnerable student develops a crush on a sympathetic schoolmistress. This terrific melodrama, with its all-female cast, really gets under the skin of young women’s friendships. Hertha Thiele’s luminous performance as the dreamy, passionate teenager was key to the film’s widespread success and its cult status in lesbian circles.
