No surprise there was a riot

by rogerco on Sat 1st Jan 2022. DVD proj @ home (with subtitles)

Slightly reminiscent of the (20 years later) Victoria. The B&W presentation feels right, the camerawork is quite fluid matching the edgy feel of the action. Perhaps it fails to delve into the pressures that the protagonists are under, and there 'hate' seems to be ust between the pigs and the kidz - but why?
