Movie Review: The Teachers’ Lounge


If you ever wondered what goes on between classes at school, the movie The Teachers’ Lounge, takes you on a thrilling ride where good intentions backfire spectacularly.

The Teachers’ Lounge

Carla Nowak (Leonie Benesch) finds herself at a new grammar school. All’s going well. She has a good group of students. However, a series of unsolved thefts sees her students searched and accusations fly.

Determined to get to the bottom of the issue Carla uses a hidden camera to uncover the thief.

The vision, though not clear, points to a staff member, who also happens to be the mother of Oskar (Leonard Stettnisch), Carla’s most gifted pupil.

What follows is a tangled mess of events threatening to destroy anyone remotely involved in the incident including Carla. 

As the credits rolled I pondered:

  1. Benesch is great as the well-meaning but often bewildered Carla;
  2. The movie is a fascinating look at how even the best intentions can go badly astray;
  3. The ending will leave you pondering. It’s the kind of movie that you’ll want to discuss over coffee or a meal or even just in the bathroom queue.
