From thunderous bombings at his own doorstep and the constant threat of Luftwaffe air raids to the landing of a German paratrooper in his neighborhood and the joyous obliteration of his much-hated school, Billy's young life is shaped--and even enriched--by the one positive thing war has brought him: liberation from the ordinary. And though Billy is surrounded by decimation and the smoking remnants of ruined lives, his sense of enchanted wonderment and innocence in the face of man's most destructive folly affect him in a way that alters his life forever."--

"Today considered one of the masterpieces of German cinema, Maedchen in Uniform was originally banned in Germany and the U.S. Set in a strict boarding school, the tale of a lonely girl's crush on a female teacher proved too sensual for some, and its condemnation of Fascist authoritarianism outraged the Nazis. With Eleanor Roosevelt's help, the U.S. ban was lifted, and the film was later named Best Film of the Year by the New York press"--Videocassette sleeve
