This is a region-free DVD-R without case or artwork.

In German with English subtitles.

Inspired by Christa Winsloe's play Gestern und Heute, Mädchen in Uniform is one of the most memorable and moving of the pre-Hitler German talkies. Hertha Thiele plays a new student in an exclusive girls' boarding school. Achingly lonely because she feels deserted by her family, Hertha keeps her distance from the rest of the girls. Persecuted for her solitary stance by principal Emilia Unda, Hertha is drawn to her sympathetic teacher Dorothea Wieck. What starts as a friendship blossoms into a romance. While public revelation of this relationship proves disastrous to both student and teacher, it is ultimately the unforgiving principal Unda who suffers most. Mädchen in Uniform was remade in 1958 with Romy Schneider and Lilli Palmer, and is also available on this site.

Reviewer: A Happy Customer from Huntington Beach, CA United States  
The cinematography is gorgeous in this film and the print is fabulous.  Very clear.  The first time I played it, there were no subtitles. I watched the whole thing despite not knowing German!  Then I emailed Movie Detective and they told me I could turn the subtitles on if I went to the 'Settings' feature.  Very clear, great product, very pleased.
