Unfortunate UK connection, 27 November 2012
Author: harry harrison from United Kingdom

Although this film is carefully made and subtly edited, it should be remembered that this movie was a significant influence on British child-care worker Frank Beck, an ex soldier who used these 'holding' techniques in children's homes that he ran and was later convicted of sexually abusing many children. Beck was a charismatic man with no therapeutic training or supervision and he basically implemented what he saw in this film. Uniquely in UK, he received many life sentences and died in prison. Viewing this film with the benefit of hindsight, we can see how someone with Beck's intentions would see it as a great cover for running a brutal regime. So bitter sweet and certainly not possible in child-care today.
