Beware of Children
BARN
2019 Norway, Sweden 157 min N-13
Added to my films

A thirteen-year-old boy – son of a right-wing politician – dies at school. The girl who pushed him – daughter of an opposing politician – is in disbelief and denial. Quickly, a tragic event is filled with doubts, fear, and anger. The teacher blames himself for not preventing it. The girl's mother is angry with her daughter for her reckless behaviour. The headmaster tries to find the best way to handle the situation… Everyone tries to act rationally, but tension finds its way and starts to spread out.

 

"This is not a murder mystery film. The director is more concerned with consequences than causes. Like a surgeon, detached and precise, he is examining the behaviour, thoughts, and conversations of those who go through it. One careless word can ruin lives, and silence, though politically correct, can lead you nowhere. A film that is relevant like never before." (Gediminas Kukta)

The film is presented by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Vilnius.
