The Edukators engagingly plays out the clash between youthful idealism and older pragmaticism.

What is interesting to watch are the unexpected turns that occur when a jilted lover, a kidnapped rich capitalist and a pair of new lovers are cooped up in an isolated chalet.
Plays out like an ambivalent political tract, full of dissatisfaction but no conclusions.
Captures the frustration of those who sense something deeply dysfunctional in the political and economic status quo but feel impotent do anything about it.
Unless you're the sort who has a Che Guevara T-shirt tucked away somewhere in your closet, the needlessly long The Edukators wears out its welcome.
The situations feel real, the injustices believable and the human frailty is all too recognizable.
Intelligent, entertaining and, yes, educational as it looks at the nature of political activism now and then.
It's deeply heartfelt and affecting, filmed with a nervy camera style that lends a vivid immediacy to the action.
full review in Greek
Much too didactic, obvious and simple-minded in its action story involving a radical act.
Although The Edukators, directed by Hans Weingartner, is a German-language film, it is set in a global village where all politics are local.
This supposedly progressive movie unintentionally delivers a sexist message as old as the garden of Eden: Don't let a woman get involved, because she'll mess things up.
The romantic triangle at the heart of the story isn't particularly suspenseful, and the all-important politics unfortunately feel facile at best.
Provocative! Is there a place for revolution within capatilistic society? Who is responsible for its ills? How can you change society without resorting to terrorism? Is hope for change merely youthful idealism? While the film raises many questions, it falls short on answers. The cast compensates for any directorial shortcomings, as the characters are sympathetic and well-acted. Stipe Erceg has 'cheekbones like geometery and eyes of sin.'
A journey through moral dilemmas and political activism, this film has reached an instant high place within my favourite movies list and it subconsciously invites you to question your own morals which pulls you further into the story.
With just a small cast, this was entertaining throughout and will no doubt be the first of many watches for me.
Likeable tale of idealistic youth colliding with aged reality. It drifts a bit towards the end but raises some thought provoking issues.
Hillarious dark comedy/satire that is basically the Germn version of Fight Club, but with less violence and profanity, but with equally brilliant writing, directing, and acting. Everyone shoul;d do themselves a favor and check this film out.
