It's deeply heartfelt and affecting, filmed with a nervy camera style that lends a vivid immediacy to the action.

Much too didactic, obvious and simple-minded in its action story involving a radical act.

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.

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.

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.
September 8, 2005
The romantic triangle at the heart of the story isn't particularly suspenseful, and the all-important politics unfortunately feel facile at best.

Like its protagonists, it means well, but gets mixed up. Too easily.
September 2, 2005
It ends interestingly, but it would've ended better, and played better, had it been half an hour shorter.
September 1, 2005
There's too much 'growing,' too much 'sharing' and way too much dialogue that's straight out of a freshman poli-sci class.

Sticking it to the man, German-style, is the subject of this smart, kicky little gem that owes as much to Guy Debord and the Situationists of yore.
