What would you do if your four year-old has been murdered by some school kids that you happen to not only know, but teach as well? In the opening to this film, Nakashima’s teacher tells her class she has just poisoned the milk of the two responsible with the HIV virus.
‘ A bleakly, furious anti-people film, in which almost every character is a vicious tyrant or a deserving victim’ - Tom Huddleston, Time Out, this is not an easy film. It examines Japanese Youth culture and extreme bullying, using flashbacks to show the ‘confessions’ which lead the teacher (Takako Matsu) to such an act.
A typically edgy Japanese schoolyard horror, with some serious - and uncomfortable - things to say
Kim Newman, Empire
