Olja is a high school history teacher, married to a painter whose latest exhibition provoked violent reactions from Serbian nationalists. One night, a group of masked hooligans attacks her. They film the attack and upload the clip to YouTube. The next day Olja discovers that some of her students were responsible. She takes away their mobile phones, and in the heat of the moment decides to lock them in the school building, also disconnecting the school phones and the internet. In order to solve the problem together, and with inability to leave the school, students begin to communicate. During that night, a generation that was written off before they were ever given a chance will learn more than they ever expected about themselves and their classmates.
The only reason I went to see this movie is because I dropped my kids to the same movie theater . I looked to see what movie is approximately same length and starting at the same time as the movie my kids were about to watch. And -Pored mene- was the only one. What a great surprises it was. This is a real refreshment. Honest and emotional movie. Acting is very good by not so well known young actors.. Story line is done marvelously well. Being generation that went to high school in the 90s, without cell phones, I was curious to see this new kids today. But the movie is so much more, not just what happens when you take the connection to the world (aka cell phones) from them.It is more then that for sure. . It goes over so many problems that high school kids are going thru. Love, hate, drugs, music,etc.. This movie is set in Belgrade Serbia, but I think audience worldwide can relate to it as well. It is unique set of problems. Do not miss this movie.
