Format: DVD
This Estonian film from director Ilmar Raag amounts to a powerful if unpleasant statement on bullying in a high school. The appalling behaviour goes on scene after scene, and does seem to be more extreme than you would usually find; nevertheless this makes the point better and in a way the last thing to do would be to soft-pedal on an issue like this. Gratuitous cruelty is always a risk and the film does not so much try to explain it - which might seem like making excuses for it - as show it graphically like a punch in the face. The purpose is not only to show how deplorable it is, but also to indicate how certain factors can allow it to happen. First among these is the stupidity of the teachers, who without exception act in entirely the wrong way. The parents of the victim, Joosep, also act absurdly, the mother by ringing the school, and the father by encouraging him to fight back and actually hitting him in the solar plexus himself, when the poor boy is getting this every day from his classmates. The film seems to be saying that stupidity allows bullying to thrive, which certainly appears to be true. The victim is actually a very likeable, shy boy and you do feel very sorry for him; a new boy in the class, Kaspar, starts to side with him which gives us some sense of a force for the good in the film, quite adroitly set against his love interest in a girl whose attitude is dubious to say the least ... all this is very well set up. The humanity of the film is really in the contact between these two boys. It slightly overdoes a gay theme it introduces, which I think could have been exploited more interestingly if Joosep had been gay, rather than it being just one more phantom stick to beat him with.Read more ›

The film deserves a full five stars, easy. The DVD is what the star rating refers to on my review. The other reviews have done a good job of telling you about the film, so I will not bother. What I want to warn you about is the SUBTITLES on this DVD release. They are DELAYED. Quite badly delayed, too. It might only be by roughly 1-2 seconds, which doesn't sound like much, but it REALLY does cause problems when watching. If you want to see the film, buy the DVD. You can get through it okay with the subtitles as they are. But it will annoy some people, so be warned.

A fantastic film - beautiful, thought provoking and raw. Well made and acted with one of the best independent soundtracks of European cinema I've heard in a long time. Well worth a watch. I also highly recommend the TV series that details the consequent events.

It's really hard at times to watch parts of the film without psychically getting angry or crying. But it's really worth it.

[Spoiler maybe]

There really isn't a satisfying ending for me, I'd have liked to see the bullies actually suffer and UNDERSTAND what they did instead of just dying. I would have liked Casper and Joosep to have had a 'happy ending' too and to have overcome everything that they went through. Also, Casper's love interest needed a good slap or five as well, she was the most selfish, irritable and conceited character in the film and was just as bad as the bullies. Ol' dramatic ass.

This movie shows the cruelty of youth amongst each other. "Friends" today, enemies tomorrow. Quite disturbing and leaves you thinking about life. Well done by young actors and actresses who are first time in the movie, plus theres not many movies being made in estonia in general.
