Der ganz große Traum - Lessons of a Dream
Director: Sebastian Grobler, Germany 2011, 113 min
Language: German with English subtitles
Based on the true story of the teacher and football pioneer Konrad Koch, “LESSONS OF A DREAM” tells the story of the beginnings of football in Germany, and of a school class that develops into a real team when they are infected with their new teacher’s football fever. Travelling back in time, the story depicts an era in which schools were still places where good breeding and order reigned and football itself (not the hooliganism, as the term later came to describe) was defined as an “English disease” by the media.
