Without meaning to, Kaspar defends Joosep against the bullying of his classmates, but every time Kaspar tries to him, it backfires, with the class taking it out on Joosep. Kaspar just wants his friends, his girl and his unassuming life back. Joosep wants to regain his dignity and the chance to switch to a high school far away. But their classmates are relentless, going further and further with each incident. Written by Anonymous

Great insight in the minds of teenagers
7 March 2008 | by (Latvia) – See all my reviews

So, I watched this movie after hearing about it on many different occasions. I have always liked movies about teenage life, especially when they are cooked correctly. And this is such case. Movie perfectly shows the power struggles, that may occur in every class. And how cruel can teenagers be. I personally have been in a situation, where most of my class is against me. So I could easily associate my self with main character.

At some points of watching it, the movie really got to me, because my hands started shaking, and I got shivers on my back. Just because, I knew how painful such attitude can be.

I'd really like to give kudos to operator, and all the actors, that were working on this movie. Camera work always showed perfect angles, so people could easily follow the story. But all the new actors, that were working on this project, played really good, without hyping their performance, what usually happens for new actors.

This movie should be shown in every school around the world, because it shows where can cruelty lead.
