"The Enclosed Society" features outstanding direction and cinematography that will undoubtedly impress you. You will never feel that anything is out of place in the set design while watching. The entire action unfolds in a classroom, and everything flows together seamlessly and coherently, as if you yourself, along with the teachers, were trapped in the situation.
The variety of camera angles is particularly remarkable. This variety might make you think about the fact that the scenes were not shot in one go, but that time elapsed between shots. This detail highlights the complexity and skill behind the production.
Special praise is also due to the assistant directors and camera assistants, who deserve a high degree of recognition for their work. Their efforts contribute significantly to the fact that "The Enclosed Society" is such a captivating and well thought-out film. As do the actors!

You can tell that he uses the comedy not only to entertain, but also to ask critical questions about education, authority and the challenges of modern pedagogy. This mixture makes "Die eingeschlossene Gesellschaft" a film that is both thought-provoking and entertaining.
While some critics complain that the film is somewhat clichéd in its portrayal of the teaching profession, it is precisely this aspect that contributes to the drama and humorous moments. It is this balance between seriousness and comedy that makes the movie worth seeing.
