Hurrah, the School Is Burning

Hurra, die Schule brennt

Directed by Werner Jacobs
West Germany, 1969


Pepe Nietnagel’s bunch’s pranks make their school a logical choice for the ministry of education to reassign an elite teacher to. The choice falls on overqualified Dr. Peter Bach, who seems wasted on but is happy in a tiny Alpine village.
