During one hot summer, a group of suburban teens hang out and play increasingly depraved games to break the listless monotony. Their descent from innocence to ruthless predators involves arson, prostitution, pornography, assault and blackmail. This controversial and explicit coming-of-age tale is imbued with sex, nihilism and amorality and is reminiscent of the films of Harmony Korine, Larry Clark and Lars von Trier.
“[A] bold and sinister portrayal of hedonistic youth…strikingly explicit spectacle of millennial depravity. We’s inflammatory passages of aimless depravity and experimentation call to mind the divisive output of famed provocateurs like Harmony Korine, Larry Clark and Lars von Trier.”
“A very interesting, provocative, often daring, fresh, sometimes peculiar film…We is much less about politics and more about youth, excesses, curiosity, pushing across borders, exaggerating, using creativity, but ending with a rather excessive, eventually dangerous, illegal and tragic venture into criminal territory.”
“Dutch version of Kids/Bully era of Larry Clark, 23 years later. Whereas Kids was a wake-up call about the kind of behaviour that young teenagers of the time were diving into, this is 20 years too late, uninteresting, and more like Bully than Kids. I.e. it’s merely exploitation, trash and sensationalism. A group of eight teenage friends form a kind of anything-goes fun club to break their boredom and challenge each other. The immoral behaviour quickly escalates from sexual games, to porn (explicit), prostitution, blackmail, and violent abuse. As opposed to Clark, this one does show consequences, except most of them don’t seem to care about anything or have any semblance of a moral compass, so it keeps spiraling even more out of control anyways. They cause senseless death and destruction, there’s a violent attempt at home-made abortion, and one guy turns out to be a sick sadist straight out of Bully. If not for the credits, I would have sworn this was a Clark movie. No realistic characters, just sensationalism and exploitation.”
