Storyline

A neo-Nazi organization is recruiting in the 1980s, and two youths of high-school age join for similar reasons, despite class differences. Thomas is the son of a self-made industrialist father and a scolding social-climbing mother. He attends private school and has a brother who's an accomplished musician, but neither can satisfy mom's constant demands for school and social success. She belittles them, and there's incessant bickering at their table. Charly, a dropout, is the son of an abusive, alcoholic laborer. In the youth group, each finds order, respect, camaraderie, and adults who seem to value them. Where do domestic abuse and sanctioned political violence end? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Excellent analysis of how gangs can become a child's family
11 June 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent movie on how, due to lack of love and warmth in a home, a child can find love and respect in gangs, clubs, and other youth organizations. In this film, Thomas Fleigl is a poor student in school, driven to run away by a brutal and uncaring mother, who thinks she does right, but never shows love to Thomas or his brother. His father has let Thomas' mother run the home, a disaster in and of itself. The neo-Nazi 'dark' side is typical jewish influence. Not all Nazi youth groups were bad. This one is portrayed as evil. The anti-homosexual bent is real and nicely done. The ending is sad and not well done. The Germans are notorious for long scenes without dialogue which can be somewhat boring, as compared to the action-adventure and fast style of Hollywood. I highly recommend this film to any younger person old enough to handle the sex scenes and the Nazi propaganda.
