A film about a child being expelled from school after soiling a teacher's...reputation.

Audio: 3.5/5
Video: 4/5
Story: 4/5
Acting: 4/5

Pros: This was a stellar film, excellent technical quality, and the story and pacing were great. The child actor in this film did a superb job, and it didn't feel too long.

Cons: This film was played out of order, a stylistic choice, and something that confused the people around me. Personally I got a bit annoyed at the title cards splitting the film into acts. It didn't add anything for me, but instead fragmented the film.

Overall: A brilliant film with only a few small snags.

A Students revenge on his teacher in three parts - end, beginning, middle. Great build up of slights against the child. Made you really want him to seek retribution.
Bit of a shock factor at the end. I'd rather something worse had happened to the teacher!
Very nicely filmed. Great acting by the child playing Vic and the nasty teacher.

Pros: Great emotion from the kid, good story. Some great (hopefully fake) poo.

Cons: A few tiny sound issues, nothing major, but noticeable

Overall: Funny film with some great gags, would watch again.

The acting put me off straight away, the principle and the teacher are simply terrible in the first scene so that put me on the defensive for the rest of the film which is a shame. Then when the teacher was in the same bathroom as the kid it made me think "wtf? can teachers use the same bathroom as students?". Then the teacher farted and used the mandatory line of dialogue, a lazy trick that I am sure we will see much more of in this years competition, well congrats guys, you are the first!

The kid did a good job, good choice on the film makers part to make him mostly silent.

The title cards seem to have been used to allude that this is supposed to be a crime movie, without them it would have been a revenge flick, something it is more successful at being. So not really a crime movie unfortunately.

Having said all that I did actually enjoy the film, the kid did a good job, good choice on the film makers part to make him mostly silent.

Nice story about a teacher that picks on a pupil (Vic) and the retribution, kinda Tarantino timeline but worked well for the story. Really sympathised with the kid, teacher was a real prick. Good acting, nice story

This was a well executed film and great comic use of the crime genre. Nice use of playing with the sequence of events to tell the story in more unique way. It was my favourite of the heat. You really felt for the kid and began to hate the teacher. The only thing I would suggest is that the poo could have perhaps been on his chair and he could have sat on it. It was a bit too obvious in the middle of the table. That would give more satisfaction to the audience. But that's just my take on it.

Clever concept, funny scripting and nicely paced, this film held my attention and made me really sympathize with the child actor (who did a great job!). Great acting by all, and overall the film was a thoroughly entertaining watch.

Very funny and the whole execution was on track, but unfortunately the film just fell off a bit at the end. I would have loved a more satisfying or infuriating, or *something* ending. Great bit of acting from the kid.

A nice little film, well acted by the young boy. I really liked how they split the acts up, making us have to guess what had happened. Overall, it was done well with good acting, shots and audio, but didn't quite have enough to grab my attention and make it great.
