Young-torless About
Young Törless

Brutal ... Lord of the Flies transplanted to an all-boys boarding school ... in which the boys desire and repel one another in the usual teenage manner ... and just when it gets most rapey and violent ... our protagonist pulls us all back from the sexploitation abyss using nothing but the power of his burgeoning intellect. There really ought to be a sequel to this film ... years after ... Prime Minister Torless ...!
