Movie Info

Peter (Stipe Erceg) and Jan (Daniel Brühl) are "edukators," anarchists who break into wealthy people's homes -- never stealing, but serving notice to fatcats that their days are numbered. Along comes Jule (Julia Jentsch), a poor student and Peter's girlfriend, who convinces Jan to help her edukate a businessman (Burghart Klaussner) she owes money to. When Jule mistakenly leaves evidence behind, they must go back to the crime scene, where they are surprised and events quickly get out of hand.

Audience Reviews for The Edukators

  • Sep 02, 2009
    This movie has everything to be an excellent movie for young people but also enjoyable for older people. Also in this film there are some very interesting political statements which should make everyone think even if doesn?t share the opinion. I mean, how many movies are there which talk about politics at all? The movie is full of emotions; the plot attracts your entire attention as you live the experiences of these three kids in Berlin, and their quest to denounce the evils of capitalism. There's romance, jokes, great scenery and cast is impressive and with interesting performances. The camera makes you feel to be very close to the scenes and the music support these emotions successfully. Very inspiring movie ..in a few words questions our understanding of happiness and success in a very entertaining way.

    about the revolutionary spirit that endures in some people and how some see it as a fad until they get older. well made by the germans

    A case of good not great. I was expecting so much more from this. Still worth watching though.

    Poor people hating wealthy people for being wealthy does not a logical film make.
