Sting

Alexander’s schooldays aren’t the happiest. He’s the smallest kid in his class and not the most popular. His life doesn’t become easier when a girl films him under the shower and shares the video with the whole class, earning him the nickname “Mini”.

    1. keep your comments to yourself, you only show ignorance.
      Is anything not Batman arthouse for you?
      The film is superbly done, perfect photography, the kids acting is natural, and very sensitively treated.
      One of the best shorts I have seen in a while.

      1. I agree with your assessment of the film. I thought it was a very cute amateur short film about middle school life.

    2. It could of very been made by a amateur. A student, whatever. I thought it was done pretty well. What the fuck do you expect?

  1. the girl was baaaaad at acting…. :/ alex was cute tho :3 are they from sweden? look at them all theyre so pasty colored!

    1. Yeah, I agree, she was awful! The film is Norwegian though, not Swedish ;)

      But was I the only one experiencing some serious “out-of-sync”-issues?

  2. james buddy don’t be so negative it had a simple nice meaning behind it, it was really cute.

  3. Thought it was a cute story, I didn’t care if the acting was brilliant just had a meaning behind this story so you people need to stop being so negative as if this was going to win an Oscar or something shesh. Besides you all were watching it to look at the cute boys so yeah

  4. Cute story… not if you lived through it … but that’s is growing up in any age. It is nicely presented and photographed. And of course, the boys are very nice.
    :)

  5. Thought the hero was cute. He had nothing to hide in the showers. The only trouble we had to wait a long time to discover it.

  6. I have ADD and suffered with bullying at school… I identifyied myself with both characters. loved it.

  7. I liked it for being a short. I wouldn’t mind seeing them do it again with a little more storyline, and character depth.

  8. So, the moral of the story is: If you are threatened or bullied at school, find a friend who is also low on the social pecking order and assault the kid bullying you.

    Not very politically correct, but I’m afraid I would have to agree.

    1. Movies aren’t a manual for life. They don’t have to be politically correct. They just tell a story.

  9. It is common enough for a boy to feel like this. When about this age your not quite sure where and how you fit in to everything. It made worse by him being filmed by the girls and then being taunted by being called mini. Now do we know if its because of his penis size, no we don’t know but we can surmise that is what it is about. Then to be taunted because of this by other boys who rest assured if they were subjected to this would also feel the same way. When we see the girl who took the video we see she is just some loser who is looking to cause trauma to somebody who does not deserve it.

    Ya a bit of a rant on my part

  10. I like it. Very cute. The only problem is I downloaded the video but I cant work out how to open it. Can someone please tell me what program I can download for free to make this video play? Thanks

  11. sound doesn’t sync with the video

    cute guys (3 of them lol)

    story line and acting was weak but i liked the camwork

  12. is this the entire thing?…
    or is there more?

  13. Heh. That’s just… Strange. Svein (ADHD) is one of my good friend’s brother :P I’ve had a crush on him for… God knows how long. There’s another film with both him and his brother (who’s equally hot….).

    I live right up the street of the school, most of alex’s classmates is among my best friends and it’s kinda weird finding this knowing that Svein has no freakin’ idea that it’s on a gay web site :P

    Svein’s 18 now, he’s awesomely hoy and got one hell of a body… I’m going to his house to party with his brother tomorrow and I’m honestly just hoping to see either of them xP I’m just adding a picture of today’s ADHD, for you to see how… Awesome he is.

    And unfortunately, he’s not a model, nor an actor. He plays guitar and plays football. He studies and doing really good. I got him hooked on Jack D, so with a 1.5 litre bottle of Jack, I’m hoping to have some fun tomorrow… Hope y’all enjoy.

  14. Have all the fun you want but do not push it. I would rather have a friend then some one who thinks i took advantage while they were drunk. You can have gay times with friends, fun and laughter mean just as much, i enjoy my time time with friends, friends are priceless.

  15. ” Friends are only Strangers you have not met ” This short film is exquisite in content, immesurable in it’s lesson and powerful in it’s message. One child enters a school and is assailed because classmates lack sympathy. A second attempts friendship, but lacks judgement. A third learns of courage through example. They all realize that friends are necessary, though not easily identified until they acquire compassion. A remarkable short film which should be expanded into a two hour film. Well done. ****

    1. Don’t you mean ‘Strangers are only friends you haven’t met yet’? Good analysis of the film though.

    1. Why would you wear clothes when you’re trying to get clean? Isn’t that the weirder thing to do?

        1. In Nordic countries people do wash up after sports, especially after swimming, as in this case. I would hope the custom would catch on. Being the whole day sweaty or stinking of chlorine is not fun.

  16. I was really taken in by this film.I don’t know what some of the viewers of this film are thinking about.This is not made to win an awards but to so how one bad idea by a hateful person can hurt another person feelings deeply.There are some children out there who get off on hurting other kids just for kicks.I know,I’ve been hurt in my younger years and you must hit back.I don’t know if I would do it the way it was present in this film,but it looks like it worked.
