The Edukators

Anne stayed at home and I went to see this German/Austrian romantic comedy. For some reason I imagined it was a Swedish film and for the first few minutes I thought "I didn't realise that Swedish sounds so much like German" and then the pfennig dropped. In the first half things go OK, the three protagonists are inside their comfort zone and are in control and this is gritty urban love story. Then things go wrong and supprisingly the pace of the film slows down, the setting changes, things become unravelled for the protagonists and much funnier for the audience.

This film is a bit of nostalgia for 1960s radicalism viewed through a sunset coloured lens, quite slow at times but it finishes with a bang which got the audience clapping.

Rating: 3/5
