Standbilder aus Fragile


Der tröstliche Umgang dieses Films mit dem Erlebnis von Tod und Sterben wird von Pädagogen mancher Länder als bedenklich angesehen. Für Schüler, die mit Sterbefällen in der Familie oder im Freundeskreis konfrontiert waren, kann dies Hilfestellung bieten. Für Schüler, die selber suizidgefährdet sind, mag der Film verharmlosend wirken.
