Good, disturbing story about defamation
Right before the final exams at high school, after a wild party, Sally accuses a classmate, Jack, of having raped her sexually - pretending to be the virtuous daughter for her father. Jack, a gifted, shy, sensitive boy, doesn't even defend himself against the allegations because he wants to keep her out of trouble with her father. They seem so absurd anyway. However, things get beyond control, and the movie becomes a complex study of the teenagers involved. There is Jack, convicted without trial or proof, perishing with his misunderstood loyalty to Sally, and her girlfriends Kika and Persica with the same loyalty, all fearing the consequences of their lies.

The actors do a good job, and so did Susanne Schneider, the writer and director. The characters seem authentic, and the none of the decisions they make is artificial. This is maybe the main distinction to many some other dramas. But somehow I feel that I've seen many similar films and that the story is not exceptionally inventive.

I disagree with the indicated Certification "for viewers older than 6". Some scenes, mainly towards the end of the movie suggest a higher age limit.
