They really don't come more powerful than this...
 
Beautifully composed, succinctly moving...with a strikingly cold colour palette.
 
A damn fine film.

The(ir) Blurb...

Erlend is bullied by his homophobic peers for having a gay brother. His teacher is not aware of the situation and Erlend doesn't seek his help. After a game of 'Shark bait' (Tag), he is subjected to a humiliating attack. Erlend's brother has suffered from prejudice and he physically fought back. He thinks Erlend needs to resolve the situation by using violence and taking revenge. One day he catches one of the bullies in the act and holds him up, encouraging Erlend to hit him. In the end, Erlend rejects his brother's solution and shows the importance of standing up for your own values. He hugs his brother as an affirmation.
