No More Heroes Anymore
8 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A remarkably brave film. A cold, detached view of how a the state-we-are-in. While hand-wringing liberals pretend violence and hatred is decreasing with their guff about multiculturalism and diverity, it is actually being encouraged and is increasing thanks to their new racist rhetoric against immigrants and the misadventures in the middle-east. This film is a fierce cry against this kind of double-heartedness.

There are no heroes in this film. Every character is part of the problem. No-one is civilised, even our young Cello player, because there is nothing civilised about civilisation.

The boys terrible action seem to come not from their own instrinsic badness but the self-interest of the society in which they live... Everyone is out for themselves, self-justifying and hypocritical, whether they be rich (the chef) or poor (the working-class male characters).

Very brave not to make them (the young rapists) into evil villains. Yet we still don't forgive them, and there is no attempt to justify their evil.

Complex and unforgiving. Great music, lovely shots and a some great young actors.
