Description

Nobody's right if everybody's wrong.

When a cold and arrogant authoritarian teacher who seems to hold all his students in equal contempt takes over a German class midway through the year, the students quickly christened him a “Nazi.” When a tragedy occurs, he becomes the target of the students’ anger and confusion. Once started, though, momentum eclipses motive, and things take on a life of their own. And the students: do they still have a just cause, or are they just rebels? Slovenia’s Oscar submission is edge-of-the-seat excitement filled with provocative ideas. Hugely intelligent, its complex situation poses difficult questions even as it thrills. Featuring amazing acting - the students are, almost unbelievably, all non-professionals - Class Enemy is emotionally gripping, incisive, involving, and yes, absolutely unforgettable.
