The Edukators (2004)

Directed by
Hans Weingartner

Austrian director Hans Weingartner's film is a witty drama about protesting against globalisation that mixes in a kidnapping, a love triangle and a test of true friendship. Jan, Jule and Peter are young radicals who break into the houses of the rich.

Once inside they don't steal, but instead daub slogans and re-arrange the furniture. But their protest goes wrong when one of their victims is at home. So they kidnap Herr Hardenberg and take him to a remote chalet.

But he too was a radical in the 60s and revels in pointing out that they will no doubt also become disillusioned and capitalist. As the trio try to decide on his fate, romantic tensions start to muddy the situation.
