A student strike at a Danish boys school is the backdrop of YOU ARE NOT ALONE. The leisurely paced tale explores the relationship between 14 year-old Bo and Kim,11, the younger son of the stern boarding school headmaster. Mounting school tensions over the expulsion of a troubled student threaten to sabotage the tranquility of the school.Written by
The casting for Kim was not easy. After screen tests for over one hundred boys, either the look or the acting was not right. Just weeks before filming began, Lasse Nielsen's co-writer recommended Peter Bjerg, the twelve-year-old son of a fellow psychologist, and he was just perfect for the role. See more »
Being my absolute favorite movie, I could watch "You Are Not Alone" if it were set on repeat. Few movies, and most certainly none of them American, set out to thrash the rules of moviemaking. Bo and Kim are beautiful young lovers and the film taints their love with equally beautiful moments shared on screen. The other boys both support the main story of Bo and Kim as well as expand into their own stories which also include the headmaster of the school all of them attend.
