Storyline

At an elite private Border School four students form a clique to sneak out of school after hours to meet, drink and play. By trying to escape the golden cage which their wealthy parents have stuck them in, they search for the Extreme. In the course of time their excessive games grow more and more violent and soon they turn against the weakest of the group: Leibnitz. Dyrbusch (Leader of the pack) and Bogatsch (the executive power) continue to torture him, he voluntarily puts up with it because he can't manage to dispose of his tormentors, on one hand being afraid to loose their "Friendship" and on the other hand due to the consequences that might arise with his parents. Konstantin, the opportunist is the only one who sees through the moral magnitude of their games, but he hesitates too long not wanting to endanger the alleged common destiny that these boys in this school appear to have: their clique. They get caught deeper and deeper in this downward spiral of violence and peer ... Written by Anonymous

Interesting premise, failed result
8 January 2012 | by (Belem, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The movie seems to have some influence of "The Young Törless", Robert Musil's novel was adapted for the screen by Volker Schlöndorff. The theme is similar: in an elite school, a group of students think they are "beyond good and evil" and bully on of its members, in a way that resembles the fascism.

"Reject the moral" means to them: massive alcohol and drug abuse, and various forms of rape and torture.

Unfortunately, the movie don't develops its interesting premise. What we see is only a strong graphic content with obvious homo-erotic subtext.

It's a weird school, where there is only one teacher and few students, and they are mere adjuncts. The author failed to portray a real school environment.

Maybe the story would be better if there were more brain and less eye candy.
