More plot holes than in a piece of emmental cheese
28 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

First the positive: kudos for the actors.

Now the bad: everything else. We should believe none, not any of the juries, any of the parents, neither the members of the choir noticed any problem. Neither why the teacher don't even try to close the gaps. The connections between the characters are entirely artificial. And we should believe the kids, who segregated themselves so much they have an absolutely strict order where to sit when (even during recess), and despite there is free space they ostracize a student by refusing to sit there - these kids supposedly can cooperate to any noble purpose.

If we'd go into details the problems would just accumulate. I suggest leave this thing alone.

And I am a hungarian. Well, not according to the Prime Law - which never had the proper authorization -, which strips everyone not Christian their citizenship, so I assume my opinion doesn't matter there.
