A high school student becomes convinced that the world has been lost to evil, and begins to challenge the morals and beliefs of the adults around him.

  • Review

    A religious fable, The Student features a boy in his 10’s named Veniamin who is religiously determined. Veniamin only states from the religious scriptures and his stubbornness are noticed when the question rises regarding school’s swimsuit policy. The deeper it gets into religious aspects, the more Veniamin’s biased tendency is appealed. Without any support from his teachers only such question arises: what is the origin of distortion and corruption? The Student illustrates mix up mystification of how religion being the core cures to human sufferings.
    While bringing a German playwright, Marius von Mayeburg’s work to the screen, Director Kirill Serebrennikov had casted actual students for the film to maintain and convey the originality?leaving a powerful impact to the viewers. [JANG Byungwon]
