Storyline

Sometimes Silence Speaks Loudest Yussef Is Complicated. Surly and silent, he cuts a lonely figure at school, isolated from staff and pupils alike. But when a vicious schoolyard fight leaves a boy severely injured and Yussef on the brink of expulsion, his one ally and friend, long suffering teacher Emily Robson, is summoned to a crisis meeting to decide what to do with this aggressive outcast. The next day, she sets the class an assignment; 'the day that changed my life'. Inspired by a series of tragically true first person testimonies gathered from around the world, 'Yussef Is Complicated' is the story one boy's desperate struggle, between his reputation and true self, his heart and his mind, his checkered past and his uncertain future.

about...
12 July 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Its subject is the school. The educational system, like an industrial machine. The film reminds the importance of the student. Out of his behavior, loneliness, violent reactions, verdict of teachers. In same measure, it is a film about near reality. With each detail defining it. A film about a family tragedy. Touching, off course, terrible in profound sense. And far to be extraordinary because it is slice of each contemporary war. The film propose, in fact, a question - who is the other ? What roots are behind his attitude ? Maybe, the answers are not significant. Only the questions. And the good performances.
