No More School (Schule)

No More School

One last chance to really "paint the town red", to really have some fun - with all their friends, with all the girls: 24 hours, shortly before they graduate, from the life of a group of school pupils in a small town in Germany - the last days before "real" life begins, for when school is over, nothing will ever be quite the same again.

No More School is concerned with a loss of youthful light-heartedness, with fears for the future, but it is also about setting forth into a new life and the happiness of young love.


Marco Petry was born in Wuerselen in 1975. From 1985 to 1994 he attended high school in Baesweiler. After graduating he spent one year doing civil service. He then served a six month internship with media-impulse before entering the Academy of Television & Film (HFF/M) in Munich in 1996 to study Directing. His credits include: Eine Portion Fritten (short, 1997), Poppen (1998), and No More School (Schule, 2000).
