Fuchs im Bau

Hannes Fuchs’ (Aleksandar Petrović) new position as a teacher in a juvenile detention facility turns out to be more conflictual than feared: he has to grapple not only with pubescent inmates, but also with colleague Elisabeth Berger (Maria Hofstätter) who rules here with unconventional methods. With a brilliant cast, Arman T. Riahi stages a nuanced film about courage, coming-of-age, and the effect of education under difficult conditions.
