Storyline

The boy Kim moves with his family from the countryside to a ghetto in a big city. He does not do too well in school, and that makes him an easy victim for the hard core bullies in the new school. When the group leader is moved to a private school, Kim is accepted in the gang - as long as he provides cigarettes for the other members. This of course leads to a confrontation with the school teachers, his family and eventually the gang members. Written by Morten Juul

Is it excellent or awful?
5 October 2005 | by carsten-glerupSee all my reviews

That is indeed the question. "Historien om Kim Skov" or "The Story of Kim Skov" was incredibly popular among school teachers in the early 80's. They liked the basic story line of a new kid in school getting harassed by the other kids to the point of the extreme. Everybody saw the film at school at the time and it is truly a rather distressful experience to witness the downfall of a young innocent kid (which could be you!). Some scenes are quite revolting for young children to watch (as I remember it) and although the actors didn't exactly score any Oscar nominations, the gloomy feeling of hopelessness stays with you long after the film ends. So is it excellent or awful? I've decided for excellent since I still - some 20 years after - can get that nauseating feeling when I think of some of the more violent scenes. It made a lasting impression on me and I'm just glad I've never experienced anything like the trials Kim Skov is going through in the film. Poor guy.
