Confessions (2010)


The various “confessions” of this movie (the teacher, the two young murderers, the mother of one of them, a student bystander and accomplice) are destined to intersect in the only possible truth, one that enhances the uniqueness and value of every single existence, however brief, however disfigured by grief and mourning.
A particular scene left me really shocked. The word life is written on the classroom board accompanied by the unpleasant “scraping the chalkboard with fingernails” sound. Then the word is then deleted by the teacher with a fast movement of a hand. So quick. So sudden.
This was a disturbing and brutal. Like this movie was.
One negative comment. It looks too much like a music video.
