| Blind girls have a look at the cruel world.
"Blindgänger" is a charming children's film set in a German boarding school for blind children.It is a light film about a serious topic of blindness which makes us aware of the fact that blind people have a great sense of social responsibility.They affirm that they are not at all dependent on people who can see.The atmosphere inside a school for blind children appears to be authentic.There is not much scope for melodrama or any kind of sentimentality.We get to have a fairly honest glimpse of their daily lives.As we watch two young boarders who are blind girls,we are able to realize that blind people cannot be taken for a ride.As they are just like other normal teenagers,it can be said that they can easily share their aspirations,concerns and dreams with other children of their age group.German director Bernd Sahling gives us an honest account of how blind people are perceived by ordinary people.It is unfortunate that they do not seem to have good opinion about their counterparts.Music is also a key element of this film. It was added in order to make this film sound good for young audiences.
