Many films feature a suicide and its aftermath but few, if any, do so in quite the way depicted by Class Enemy. Set in a school, the conduct of a new German teacher sets in train a sequence of events and speculation. This masterpiece not only shows the impact on those who claim to know the victim but also the lengths to which the establishment will go to protect its interests. Based on events witnessed and experienced by the director, although the story has been heavily fictionalised, this is a stunning piece of cinema.

"The film struck me in its brilliance, perhaps because it steers clear of taking sides." – Huffington Post
