'An inspiring documentary which uses its sharp focus to convey the genuine heroics of a teacher who would otherwise by absent from such a spotlight.' - Jo-Anne Titmarsh, HeyUGuys

'Just might restore your faith in humanity.' - Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter

Maria Speth’s intimate, utterly absorbing documentary is a joyful cinematic experience, exploring the bond between an inspirational teacher and his students. Herr Bachmann is a charismatic, unflappable, scruffily dressed 64-year-old, clearly held in esteem and affection by his class of young teenagers in the small German industrial town of Stadtallendorf. They all come from very mixed ethnic backgrounds with varying degrees of confidence and ability. The film patiently reveals his unconventional methods in long and fascinating classroom scenes as the dynamics of the group gradually reveal themselves.
