The Edukators (3/5)

Good. A little long but with some satisfying moments and an approapriately un-preachy ending. Aaaaand, the main protagonist (1) carried a messenger bag, (2) drove a VW, and (3) used the All-powerful Newton! Someone to be respected. The three main characters "terrorize" the wealthy by breaking in and impishly re-arranging their furniture in unlikely stacks, leaving only the message "Die fetten Jahre sind vorbei" (your days of plenty are numbered). Something goes wrong (of course) but not terribly wrong. The story is generally well-paced, but maybe 20 minutes could have been cut from the 2:07 running time.
