Excellent film on youth detention center . Brutal and powerful. Matej Zemljic
gives an incredible performance as a tormented young man trying to find his way in life. The director keeps things tense and involving and it is a remarkable character study of conflicted youth. Saw this at TIFF 2018 and was blown away. Congrats to all, especially Matej who gave a breakout performance!
