  • During: The comprehensive scene-by-scene analysis ensures thorough understanding.

‘This is an interesting resource, providing good background information about post-war society and the film itself. The football part of it should also capture the interest of the students.Students learn significantly more about Germany after the war, the development of a new consumer society and provides valuable insights into the historical context of the film.’ – H Rentel, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
