    The lead girl is fantastic for her age and I love the idea of taking the Son of Saul aesthetic and moving it from Auschwitz to an elementary school. Unfortunately, even at 72 minutes it doesn't feel like there was enough story mapped out to warrant that run time. It feels more like the same beats repeated over and over again. There's an escalation of stakes but the dynamics are for the most part very static.

    I would not have guessed that this came out in 2010 based on how well the visuals hold up. On the other hand, the script is pathetic and such wasted potential. Maddeningly flavorless screenwriting.
