Jakob von Gunten 1971
This is adaptation of the novel by Robert Walser.
The novel begins with the arrival of the protagonist Jakob at the Institute Benjamenta in Berlin. This is a school that trains adolescent boys to be servants. The Institute Benjamenta is a school in which, as the first sentence tells us, very little is taught and whose students will never amount to anything in life. But Jakob comes there, it seems, of his own volition, also in possession of the money to pay the school fees. Why has he come? Who gave him the money?
