Realistic high school experience; not innovative, but still good, 9 October 2007
Author: aleksandrsa from Riga, Latvia

Even though I have seen this - school violence - before (as mentioned, in "Elephant" by Gus van Sant or even in soviet "Chuchelo") I liked "Klass". The development of the story sometimes was too predictable or over exaggerated, at the same time it wasn't boring at all.

It is always hard to understand why young people take one position or another in situations depicted. It is especially hard when you are an adult and high school seem to be very distant in time. But let's be honest, systems of relationships among high school students are functioning in the same way as we see it in the movie. I give it "9" just for what the "Klass" is without comparing it to similar-themed productions. I believe the story, as I do believe in it's power to invoke a discussion about all kinds of violence among the youngsters.
