The Stammtisch, a regular casual get-together, offers students of German the opportunity to converse in German with each other, as well as with native speakers - Germans living and working in Bangalore.
The evening usually starts with a film screening, which serves as an exercise in comprehension, a glimpse into German culture and a springboard for discussion. After the screening we gather at 8.00 p.m. at Cafe Max for a pleasant get-together or "Stammtisch". All films are in German with English sub-titles. Non-German speakers are also welcome.
This month we will screen Fack Ju Goehte by Bora Dagtekin.
Somebody built a goddamn school gym directly over the stolen cash his girlfriend buried for him. And now, ex-con Zeki Müller (Elyas M'Barek) has no choice but to pass himself off as a substitute teacher at Goethe Comprehensive School, thus providing the German educational system with one more problem, i.e. the craziest teacher of all time. At night, Zeki digs secretly for his loot: during the day, he uses drastic yet effective methods to bring the unruly kids of class 10B back on track.
Although his prim and proper fellow teacher Lisi Schnabelstedt (Karoline Herfurth) condemns the unorthodox pedagogical approach taken by her new "colleague," she nevertheless finds herself falling in love with Zeki and even helps him dig up something more valuable than cash, namely the remains of his own moral integrity.
