CLASS ENEMY @ Venice (Critics’ Week)

Director: Rok Biček, drama, 112 min, in Slovenian and German

Winner of the Fedeora Critics Award in Venice, Slovenia’s entry for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film 2014.

Due to a huge difference in the way they perceive life, the relationship between students and their new German language teacher becomes critically tense. When one of the students commits suicide, her classmates accuse the teacher of being responsible for her death. Emotions run so high, the entire school and the parents becomes involved, but everyone has their own reason for seeing the situation in black and white.

Variety: “Further fest action is a given for this convincingly performed, character-and-situation-driven drama.”
