as far as the whole bullying theme went, it was done terribly. this film depicts kids going on a wild goose chase to literally nowhere. i would say the camera work was well done but even that was horrible. the lingering after shots were a bore and probably would have cut this movie in half. if anything the movie makes you ask yourself why you wasted 124 minutes watching it.
The camera work reminded me a lot of that in the movies of Roy Andersson, and here too it served the purpose well. The static frames made you feel helpless and cowardly, as were all the bystanders in the movie of whom no-one interfered with the portrayed bullies and their victims. Which of course happens all the time in real life. This movies makes you ask questions about yourself, and only truly great movies do that
the more I think about this film, the more I love it. Truly brilliant in the most subtle and introspective way...
A relentless cycle of oppression instigated by capitalism...Reminiscent of some of the Romanian New Wave. Brilliant use of the cinema frame and wonderful interaction with audience perception!
