Storyline

July 2001. 200,000 protesters, consisting mainly of anti-globalization activists and anarchists of the Black Bloc) try to prevent the G8 summit from taking place in Genoa. The authorities, determined not to let them achieve their aim, give a free hand to the anti-riot police in the matter of repression. The Police superintendent decides a nighttime raid upon the Diaz school, used as a sleeping quarter and a center for those providing media, medical, and legal support work. The film tells about the ordeal put through by all those who slept or worked there, courtesy of the barbarous Police forces, complete with furious baton attacks and shameless humiliation following arrests.

brutally and to point - must see to understand agressivity in people
21 February 2013 | by (Slovakia) – See all my reviews

What happened on that day and is portrayed in the movie is nothing new.

All of us have seen what happened in Abu Ghraib, concentration camps, even on socker matches or concerns... we all know that people behave like swine when they are given the opportunity and even worse, when they are in "authority" (in any sense).

I have tried to read a book by psychologist Philip Zimbardo, that explains the topic of violence brought in common people if they are given an order or authority to do so... couldn't, it didn't feel realistic enough to follow. I saw the Experiment, based on his work and didn't find it realistic again - it felt like fiction.

Than this movie came. I seriously would make it an obligatory part of police and soldier training. To show them what they can become if they don't watch themselves... I would show it on psychology lessons to make the students understand that the beast in us is very much alive. Its a movie that partly kills the "humans are nice" mindset, but sometimes it needs to be done - the risks of forgetting are too high.

When I left the cinema I was thinking if there is anything that can be done from MY side to prevent such things from happening... All i came to was to be good - to spread the feeling of connection with strangers, to try and make any matter personal. This movie made me consider joining the police just to see and try to not allow anything like this to happen. Thank you for this, I don't know what will be my role, but movies like this make me realize, that living for my own self is just not enough (one day I might be sorry for doing so.. if I find myself on the wrong end of the baton).
