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>

Hard-hitting, disturbing and uncompromising film
29 June 2003 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This is a very raw and forthright film in its depiction of modern German youth's vulnerability to Neo-Nazi persuasion and sexual abandon. It's very adult and very disturbing, but exceptionally well-acted and produced. How about a DVD release?
