Dead Poets Society

 

“Carpe Diem! - Seize the day!“ This is the motto of the new teacher, Mr. Keating, who teaches English at a very strict and conservative boarding school for boys in the 1950s.

Dead Poets Society is one of the best films I have ever seen. The late Robin Williams acts in a fantastic way, and also the other actors are very good. This wonderful film is a perfect mixture of humour and serious themes such as death and the meaning of life. There are only few people I know who didn't cry the end of this fascinating film - a film which everyone should have seen and which makes you think about what really matters in life.
