Leave Us Alone 1975
La’ os være (original title)
1h 22min | Drama | 3 February 1975 (Denmark)
A group from a ten to sixteen-year-old Danish educational center breaks the rules there and goes to an uninhabited island in a stolen boat. When the boat disappears, they are left to themselves, and their holiday turns into a nightmare: peer pressure, serious violence, accidents. But for some of them also an experience of love.
“Let’s Be”, which seemed loosely inspired by William Golding’s novel “Lord of the Flies”, was described by many as too harsh, and the film was banned for children under the age of twelve. The authors claimed that it gave a realistic picture of the children and young people of the time. The amateur actors came from a Copenhagen youth club, and the film’s dialogue is improvised. The film became the prelude to a wave of youth films with anti-authoritarian stance over the following years.
