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

Not amazing, but very passionate and enjoyable
20 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The filmmakers weren't trying to win big awards or please mainstream audiences with this, but I think it was very successful in capturing the cruelty of youth and the illogical passions that can take over our lives. "Nobody understands me" might seem kinda trite but the film wasn't idealistic with this concept, and I especially liked that they had the goth girl laughing along with everyone at Joosep. I was watching with subtitles so I have no business commenting on the dialogue, but the interaction among the kids was well written and acted. I'm usually very detached from films emotionally but I was more engrossed with Klass.
