Learning how an autocracy works takes on a distinctly disturbing angle when the pupils start to live and act under autocratic rules and conventions. As what was initially an experiment gives way to daily living, what will it take before those involved realise what is happening? It is said that evil exists when one good person does nothing but what happens when one good person does something? A stunningly powerful film that is frighteningly believable and one that is all the more thought provoking for being set in Germany.
Thanks to Momentum Pictures.
It's brilliantly written and directed, wonderfully performed by an ensemble cast, and haunting in its intensity.
