This movie is AMAZING . Its unique. I was on my toes for the entire movie , there wasn't a moment I was bored .
Everything was just great .
At first I wasn't sure that It was going to be good because most of the cast was under 17 years old . But they did an amazing job .
They did suck a good job of portraying the characters I was read more scared of them while watching the movie.
It very emotional as well I wanted cry half way through
It so good it made on UK TV !
ITS a must WATCH !!

I am speechless. I can't even express how I feel. This whole movie was a mind game, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. So many events, so many lives, but one purpose. I wish to write something as dark and meaningful like this someday.

I doubted that I would like this movie at first. The dialogue in the first scene was long. But I came to understand it was important. I don't regret read more the stubbornness I had to sit through that particular scene. Then came the confessions. Just...wow! What a brilliant scheme! This was a really clever one.

The music was very good and it achieved the desired effect. Even added an artistic tinge.

The characters were very well portrayed. I even sympathized with the worst of them (psycho kid). Had a conflicting sense of hating the things he did and feeling sorry for his situation.

I hold great admiration to the writer of this movie. Thank you, this actually had everything I ever wanted to see in a movie. It leaves a deep impression that I won't be able to shake off anytime soon.

Both connects with a Student-Teacher relationship. These movies made me speechless to the point I dont know where am I anymore. It also have similar events that was so dark yet emotional at the same time and it was just executed brilliantly.
Recommended by jia
Both deal with hidden, twisted societies, where seemingly innocent kids behave maliciously. While Confessions is a film in which several characters develop the plot by making confessions from their points of view, in the World of Kanako, former detective Fujishima has to uncover the appalling world of his daughter Kanako layer by layer. Two very dark films executed brilliantly.

    Waw. I seriously want to stand up and give lot of claps after watching this movie. It is really different. Once again, different. I never watched anything like this. And it is hard for me to describe and review this movie. I really can not describe it well, damn!

    For sure, it is dark. Gloomy. Something you want to watch when you had enough of romantic genre. Something you seek when you want something unusually great. Something you'll grab when it is okay for you to be confused. Something that mind blowing.

    It portrays every side of stakeholder (seriously, i never think i will use this kind of word to review a movie!) of one, single, tragedy, in not so common way. That's it.

    Oh man, this movie is unforgettable.

    Wow! And here I was not going to watch it after seeing the trailer. It's amazing! The trailer doesn't do it any justice.

      How so? Trying to decide whether to watch. Most are saying it's brilliant so I'm interested in knowing about the stupid-cringey side

      the film is about a teacher who takes revenge on her middle school students, the story tries to be serious but i just couldn't take it seriously,
      also there is an annoying filter used in the film, it gave me a headache.
      sorry for the late response btw :)
