When everybody is reading the issue of the "Hollands Dagblad" newspaper with the story about the death of Jochem, a close-up shows the headline "Pesten oorzaak zelfmoord leerling" (Bullying cause of students suicide). The actual text of the article is not the text Davids mom was writing about the bullying of Jochem, but an article about the political campaign of the PVV of Geert Wilders. See more »

A classmate of David gets bullyed because he is to fat. Although David stands up for him many times, it is far to late.
30 November 2013 | by ahmadtghazal1998See all my reviews

It is a heart-ranching movie that should be viewed all over the world. It shows what the extent of bullying can do. Just a few years ago a small boy was killed by bullies. which made world wide news. Another good movie is Pay It Forward, where the kid is not bullied but gets killed by bullies when trying to save a bullied boy.

It made me feel really sad and reminded me about all the movies,books, and true stories about bullying that i have seen,read, and heard of. I don't cry at movies but I know it must be vary sad because first i felt it, and second every girl in the movie theater was crying. I hope you all watch it.

Thank you
