Young Torless: The Criterion Collection

At an Austrian boys' boarding school in the early 1900s, intelligent Torless observes the sadistic behavior of his fellow students, doing nothing to help a victimized classmate-until the goes too far. Adapted from Robert Musil's acclaimed novel, Young Torless launched the New German Cinema movement and garnered the 1966 Cannes Film Festival International Critics' Prize for first-time director Volker Schlondorff.
