"Torment" is an absorbing film based around an unlikely love triangle between a mild mannered and earnest schoolboy,Jan Erik, his Latin teacher and a depressive lush of a tobacconists shop assistant. The Latin teacher is a bit of a misanthropic bully and he is like a cross between Himmler and Mr Bronson from "Grange Hill". His bark is worse than his bite; maybe. The monochrome film is shot impressively and acted well by all of the main characters involved . The love triangle ends in tragedy and classroom tensions spill over into the family and social life of Jan Erik. "Torment" is well paced , well acted and the picture and sound quality are excellent too.
