Mädchen in Uniform   PG
(Germany/1931)                         88 minutes
Leontine Sagan

Herthe Thiele|Dorothea Wieck
Manuela is forced to attend a strict all-girls boarding school following the death of her mother. She becomes attracted to a particular teacher, who is more sensitive and compassionate than the others, and is also popular with the other girls.

A film banned in the USA, banned in Nazi Germany, which sought to destroy all prints, and heavily censored elsewhere. Why? Decadence: specifically, its sympathetic portrayal of lesbianism. Fortunately, the film was widely distributed outside Germany, so sufficient material survived to assemble this restored version.
