Synopsis

Watch The Elementary School (1991) online for free on 123Movies. A group of ten-year-old friends nears the cusp of adolescence in post-World War II Czechoslovakia, developing a curiosity about love and the other ineffable aspects of adulthood. Coming-of-age story set in 1945. The post-war climate is illustrated in a small Czechoslovakian village. Eda and Tonda are two young boys whose mischievous antics involving rocketry send their meek teacher to an asylum. She is replaced by a larger-than-life figure who purports himself to have been a hero of the resistance during the war. He uses his position of authority as a pulpit from which to expound on his beliefs and drives home the point for truth and honor. The heretofore undisciplined boys hang on his every word and are changed by him. The paradox is that while the teacher leads the boys on a path to glory, he is himself consumed with lust, for women and glory. The principal character, young Eda, learns to separate the wheat from the chaff as he discovers the teachers faults, yet retains the lessons of honor and truth.
