British ska comedy about girls’ school

Several “paths” led us to the film “Classmates” (2007). Lena Headey, who did not yet know that she would become Cersei Lannister. Infernal model Lily Cole, unaware of Terry Gilliam’s plans for the Imaginarium. Alreadythe symbol of youth cinema Mischa Barton . And that’s not counting the male actors: Colin Firth, Rupert Everett, Toby Jones, Stephen Fry

And here comes Lena Headey as the new Teaching English. Still from the movie “Classmates” (2007)
If you somehow characterize this crime-comedy tape, then we can say that “Classmates” is something like a “cocktail” from “The Worst Witch” (1986) and “How to Steal a Million” (1966). It is no coincidence that one of the heroines asks at the very beginning of the film: “Is this Hogwarts for losers?” No!!! This is much cooler – this is St. Trinian, a school for “deviant girls.” A kind of “republic of SHKID”, only in a very short skirt.

It is no coincidence that we mentioned the legendary retro film, since the “origins” of “Classmates” originally had the adventurous comedy “Beauties of Saint Trinian” (1954), which, using the famous success, gave rise to several sequels: “Blue Murder” , “Pure Hell”, “The Great Robbery”, “Wild Cats”. Naturally, in each individual case, the name of the ill-fated educational institution was added.

In 2007, they decided to “modernize” the plot, which was very successful. The beginning of the film was so brilliant and very funny (well, if, of course, you like “black humor”). And all this action was accompanied by the rolling of ska. If you are not very familiar with music, then we will give you a hint: this is a loose style, in which, for example, the group “Leningrad” played.

At some moments it seemed that part of the musical background was created by the unforgettable “Cord”, although they were still British musicians. Including the girls’ group “Girls Young”, which after the collapse of “Spice Girls” took its place on the Olympus of pop music there. Although the young ladies allowed themselves elements of light punk and rockabilly, and therefore they were perfect for the film (at the end of the material, we present the final clip-scene of the film).

So, the plot is based on the fact that they want to close the school (Hurray !!!), and distribute its students to normal institutions (YES YOU ….) To save St. Trinian, half a million pounds must be “suddenly found”. And since the girls at school did anything but study (from underground casinos to the illegal production of distillates), they decided to get the indicated amount by criminal means.

Namely, to kidnap The Girl with the Pearl Earring. This is a painting by Vermeer. And here there is a play of meanings. In 2003, a film was shot on the creation of this canvas, in which one of the main roles was with Colin Firth. In Odnoklassniki, he plays a very angry minister of education. By the way, the girls from the film are not as stupid as they seem. Even some unlucky blonde exclaims: “How? Steal Scarlett Johansson? “That one also had a leading role in the 2003 film. Eh … Here, so that all dysfunctional schoolgirls here see such smart films.
