Based on the motto, “School was yesterday – life is now!”, director Marco Petry’s “Class of 99” is a sensitive film about friendship and love, trust and loyalty, centred on a group of young people in a small German town who finished school three years ago. When Felix (Matthias Schweighöfer) drops out of university and returns home to attend police college, his friends have all gone separate ways. A tragic event forces them to reappraise their lives and ambitions. Marco Petry’s debut film, “School”, was a huge success in 2001, with more than one million viewers in Germany.
