Storyline

Kaspar and the class pushover Joosep are 16 and life in high school isn't easy. 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

I Saw Entire My Life Run in My Eyes...
28 December 2007 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

I have seen a LOT of movies, but this one that i will remember for sore.

"someone" who accused this to be 'Elephan' rip-off should really chill out.. maybe he has been only in home school.

I personally am connected to all these 4 main characters in this movie.. i have changed in my life 4 schools and 7 classes, so i have had some time in my life time to live in-to one or other character in this movie.

It does not matter that this script is kind of "predictable" for some people, specially the ones who have seen similar movies,it is like that because it's REAL life, it just shows that it IS same in USA,in Finland, in Russia & also here in small Estonia... etc.

I am sore, it makes a lot of school life better, after schools would show this movie to every student. Of course, the effect is not same for bullies if they see this movie in big group.. but better then nothing, at least other students will maybe see them self in one or other character and start to think differently.

& the others students, please after the movie, do not think who will be the shooter in your school, try to find out who is the bullier and deal whit him(or her - sometimes). Like i said, i have been one and other character, in the end i got it right, but then the school was over and it was to late :) (english was not one of my mayors ike you can see..)
