CGiii Comment

Masturbation causes impotence...so says the teacher, who also happens to be a catholic priest!
 
Why are these people allowed to 'teach' such lies? Why do these schools still exist? Why would parents want to send their kids to such a school?
 
Just a few of the questions that spring to mind after watching this fine film.
 
Obviously, inspired by Lindsay Anderson's [superlative] If... - and, the [lovely] Handsome Devil seems to have drawn much from this film...
 
Indeed, boys, catholics and schools are rich pickings for filmmakers...and Mr Thiedeman does those subjects justice...a fine addition to this particular canon!
