German film for Year 9

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by sim123, Jul 3, 2011.

  1. We are planning a media unit for Year 9 and would like to do a film project.
    Can anyone suggest any suitable German films please ?

    With Year 9, we have been watching episodes from the Teacher's TV soap opera 'Extra'. We thought a full film might be a bit too ambitious. Quite a lot of Teacher's Tv stuff has been adopted by TES when Teacher's TV ceased to exist. Might be worth checking out.

    it's not deep but the kids love it- die wilden Kerle.
     
  4. Thanks for the suggestions. We are definitely looking for a film rather than TV prog.
    Any other suggestions gratefully received

    Das Wunder von Bern always goes down well with that age group, I find. There are some useful resources on it here: http://www.irishfilm.ie/educ/index7_07_e.asp which can be adapted depending on the ability level of your group.

    Sophie Scholl - Die letzten Tage is very good - a little heavy but is good for making pupils realise that not everyone in Germany between 1933-45 was a Nazi.
    Certificate PG - won many awards
     
  7. But I think the Sophie Scholl one is too heavy for Y9. I think many would have huge problems coping with it. I would rather go for Das Wunder von Bern. They can research on the internet what really happened before they watch the film.
     
  8. Lola rennt....some swearing

    And it's a 15.......
     
  10. Are you watching the second one or the first one? Because I cannot find the first one with English subtitles.

    second one. Third one has subtitles, too. I bought the box set and the first one doesn't have subtitles.

    Having thought about it, I think das Wunder von Bern is your best choice- it has a lot more in it. You could do die wilden Kerle 2 as a frivolous 2 lesson thing.
