As a group of Danish children pass into adolescence, gradually the most popular girl becomes an outcast, for trivial reasons that she never understands.
Nils Malmros memory trilogi (also include Lars Ole 5.c and Drenge) culminate with this masterpiece, who is the best danish film ever made. Sad that is not came to UK and USA, because its much better than Bille August also good "Twist and shout" and Zappa. The movie is about a schoolclass in the late 50´s. Nils Ole (Who is Malmros alter-ego) and the popular girl Elin is in front. But the class turns their bag to Elin and she be more and more vulnerable. Francois Truffauts influence on Malmros is clear, but Malmros a real author on his own way. Kundskabens træ is absolutely amazing.
Great Sunday afternoon movie! If you went to school in the "olden days" or went to a private school this will definately bring back some fond memories and it has a few nice scenes too. Man, things were so much more simple back then
