The Forest for the Trees - Der Wald vor lauter Bäumen - 2003 German film directed by Maren Ade.  Melanie leaves home to become a teachers, armed with alternative methods and bright-eyed optimism.  Soon enough, though, storm clouds begin to form: she is tortured by her students and rejected by her colleagues.  There is no comfort in her personal life, either, as loneliness begins to take its toll.  Eager for some kind of companionship aside from the creepy Thorsten, the only co-worker her age, Melanie orchestrates a "chance meeting" with her attractive neighbor.   Stars Eva Löbau, Daniela Holtz and Jan Neumann.  Unrated (rated 13 in Argentina), with optional English subtitles, 81 minutes.

Includes a free discussion guide for classroom use!
