Conformists who were once rebels and radicals who've ended up as reactionaries is the theme of The Edukators, the second feature by the Austrian neurologist-turned-film-maker Hans Weingartner, made entirely with handheld cameras and natural light.

Jan and Peter have a hidden life as a duo calling themselves The Edukators. Breaking into expensive homes, they rearrange the furniture and leave messages for the wealthy owners. Peter's girlfriend Jule comes between them and a job goes horribly wrong, leaving the three of them stuck with an unexpected hostage in the form of a lapsed sixties radical.

"The Edukators makes clear that everyone plays by rules they didn't make, then excuses themselves for not changing the world."

"The whole thing feels messy, painful, funny and believable, just like that hideous circus known as real life."
Washington Post
