    Original theatrical trailer
Hazing goes too far in the German classic "Young Torless" (1968). At an Austrian boys’ boarding school in the early 1900s, shy, intelligent Törless observes the sadistic behavior of his fellow students, doing nothing to help a victimized classmate until the torture goes too far. This movie launched the New German Cinema movement and garnered the 1966 Cannes Film Festival International Critics’ Prize for first-time director Volker Schlöndorff. Starring Mathieu Carrière, Marian Seidowsky, and Bernd Tischer.
