Free violence
8 April 2013 | by anderson-santos-brSee all my reviews

The technical parts of the movie, for my eyes, are quite good, the actors were convincing and it's based on a real story, which could mean something, but for me the movie was based on free violence and bullying. Hardly got me on anything. Was not pleasant to watch and even though I don't speak German very well and I watched only in German, most of the dialogs were very superficial. No real conflict for me, if the director wanted to raise awareness of the way we deal with the young prisoners, it is quite disappointing. The plot, for its contents and interactions, instead of almost 2h of movie could have been told in 30 minutes. I'm very disappointed with the movie, and feel like there was a complete lack of purpose, if that was intentional or not, I wouldn't recommend it to my friends.
