A story about harrassment in high school. A young boy is being harrassed by his class mates and as a result, he commits suicide. This is where class mates and the school board start scratching their heads...when it's too late. This film is after a book by the popular Dutch writer Carry Slee.Written by
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 »
Second part of the film is good, but it's a shame that some details are embarrassing... such as the scene where the two guys are doing a paper route. Watch the door... first it has a mailbox in the door, second scene it disappears. And at the end of the movie, everybody is reading a newspaper with the headline. Well, the headline is okay, but the article doesn't deal about the subject at all. It deals about political parties in the Netherlands,such as the VVD and the CDA. Some effort could have been taken to write an article so the visitors in the movie theater won't be surprised by an article that deals about something completely different. A shame... Overall. The movie is okay.
