    Shocking

    The plot is talking about last day at school three of 12-years old
    teenagers coming from different families. The director slowly showed us
    their worlds. You feel that in some moment something it’s gonna
    happened but you don’t know what it’s gonna be… The final of this
    story is shocking, very strong and what is more scary- based on the
    real story.I have never seen in my life more stronger final of the
    movie.Film only for adults. Director is asking about the roots of evil
    and we he showed us that even children are not free from them. From the
    other side Bartosz M. Kowalski has touched the problem so often not
    absent, overworked parents who have no idea how really looks like the
    life of their own kids.

    Be warned

    This film by a young Polish director, continues the great releases from
    this country over the last few years. I could mention a few titles that
    have been released but wont as it will take up too much space here.
    Polish cinema is going through a golden age, but I fear that the world
    has not woken up to it, and it is basically unknown except to certain
    cinema professionals. In this film two boys have problems at home
    relating to home-care that has been forcibly placed on them. One has to
    care for his invalid father and the other has to sleep in the same room
    with his crying infant brother. These boys of around 12 years of age,
    later mentally torture a female classmate who has an infatuation with
    one of them. In the last chapter something extraordinary happens that
    would be distressing to all viewers. Be warned. As for the making of
    this film, the visuals (very raw, showing the ugliness of Poland town
    life), the connections with chapter headings, the tension, acting,
    narrative, plot, etc. make it a gem of a film, and one that you will
    never forget. I’ve taken one star off for the not so clear dialogue by
    the young boys and for the disturbing theme. Therefore a nine.
