–Comment: First Daniel Müller als Uli, one of the smallest boys in this boarding school with the blonde wig (pic 1 at 1h00), one boy touching one of the ribbons, saying that he looks like a girl and then Uli removing the wig (brief scene).
A longer scene is the stage play showing another boy wearing that wig and a light yellow skirt (pic at 1h25). Scenes are mostly from the side and background.
As said, I missed most of the movie and now have only briefly checked it. I haven’t found a scene at a hairdresser where they got the wig like in the original classic. Probably there isn’t such scene here. (I also haven’t found Lederhosen).
I hate the (early) 70s and it’s fashion, especially the swimwear. Most boys have long hair anyway. One or 2 are handsome though.
Movie rating 2, pigtails scene rating ~7. I still prefer the 1954 classic, although b&w (rating 8)
