    This might be the biggest 180 any sequel did compared to the original.

    The metaphors might be a little on the nose but I can live with that. 
    As strange as that might sound but I’ve yet to see a film that better captures the essence of the first few weeks at a European Uni (cannibalism may or may not be included).
