205. Confessions (2010)

In a Japanese school, a young teacher tells the class she is leaving. They don’t listen, until she raises her voice and announces that she’s going because she has reason to believe that two members of the class murdered her 4 year-old daughter.

The shocked class listen on as she tells them who she accuses – in order to let the class decide on their form of punishment, as the perpetrators are too young to be charged with a crime of that magnitude. Of course, the class exact their revenge, and go beyond both what would be deemed to be justice or an eye for an eye.

It’s shocking and brutally cruel, as the children understand they cannot be held responsible for anything that occurs. Although the film loses a bit of pace halfway through, as a psychologically twisted little movie, it’s worth checking out.

7/10
