Bedlam in a classroom: a foot on a desk, someone making a face, a voice—obviously the teacher’s—trying to get things under control, two kids fighting in the corner. In a word: Ghetto. We accompany a handful of teenagers from “The worst ****ing ghetto room in the entire school.”

A well-meaning documentary about kids and their problems in school, at home, in the clique. Problem is that after a while nothing really new happens. And sorry, kids, but being young and foolish is not that interesting.
I was growing up in the mid 90's in the Swiss German part of CH and I can totally relate to some of the characters and situations. Takes a while to get into, but the last leg of the film is spellbound. Some beautiful scenery as well, which is paradoxical to the bleak reality of these teenager's real lives.
Finally it's over ! haha, nahh it wasn't all that bad, really interesting scenes actually, and it brought me back to my teenage years. However I think this movie could have easily been edited to be half as long and it's message would have been understood as well. Like another reviewer said at the ending, the last 30 min of the film, it's much more interesting.
Authentische Filmrecherche einer Generation zwischen Selbstständigkeit und Unselbstständigkeit, am Rande der schönen Szenerie eines der wohlhabendsten Gebietes der deutschen Schweiz. Sehenswert, aufschlussreich und sowohl positiv wie auch negativ berührend.
