Films presented by SCHLINGEL since 1996
The pupils of class 6b do not really enjoy going to school. Not even Tobias, although the lessons and meeting his friends there is his only chance to escape from the gloomy atmosphere at home for a few hours. But then class 6b gets a substitute teacher - the young, somewhat uncertain trainee teacher Mister Twister. He introduces himself, talks about his dog and Marie-Louise, who he loves secretly. The children are amazed and soon take a shine to Mister Twister. Especially since he introduces completely new teaching methods: maths problems are combined with steeplechase, biology lessons take place outdoors, and when someone gets hungry, there is the “food project”. When the headmistress gets wind of this, she asks Twister to be like a “real” teacher.
