Die Feuerzangenbowle

Die Feuerzangenbowle is a German movie which was originally made in 1944, directed by Helmut Weiss based on a book with same name.

It is a story of a young successful writer, Dr. Johannes Pfeiffer who has studied in home school missing the real student life.  He decides to make up for it by masquerading as a student at a small town high school and quickly gains a reputation as a prankster. And of course, he fell in love with the principal’s daughter.

The movie was originally spoken in German and this version had luckily the English subtitles. For me, it was not easy to try to listen German, read English and translate all to Finnish at the same time. After all I could follow the plot and recognized few German words which I have learned in earlier EOTO sessions.
