Synopsis / Plot
“Girls in uniform” with Romy Schneider and Lilli Palmer was shot in 1958 by Géza von Radványi, it being the remake of a 1931 version of the same plot. This version was already based on a play by Christa Winsloe called “Gestern und heute” (”Yesterday and today”). It’s about a young girl called Manuela who is sent to boarding school after her mother dies. She doesn’t fit in very well, being sensitive and shy, until she meets one special teacher: Fräulein von Bernburg, whom she falls in love with. The Fräulein seems to reciprocate in a very restraint manner but things turn sour when Manuela declares her love publicly. Being reprimanded by the head mistress and threatened by the prospect of being forever separated from her beloved Fräulein, Manuela wants to kill herself…
