It's time to take a stand.
Stockholm, the fifties. Though academically bright, violent pupil Erik Ponti is expelled from his state school with the headmaster’s words “there’s only one word for people like you – evil… what you need is a good thrashing, and more”. In fact already Erik frequently receives a ‘good’ thrashing at the hands of his sadistic stepfather – so he is packed off by his mother to boardingschool

Loved every bit of this movie. I just had to endure the amount of restraint the main character had, not to beat the shit out of the people that deserved it.

When Erik's digging a grave in the rain, on command of one of the "bullies". There's a moment when he comes to check up on him. And Erik slightly raises the shovel, and you can actually see the fear in the bullies eyes. Because the only thing that's stopping Erik is the fact that he's being constrained by consequences. There's small things like that which contribute to making this a great movie.
