The Substitute

The Substitute is a film where democracy and authority, tradition and innovation are juxtaposed and where great emotions spring to life. It’s the story about the young and ambitious Max and his old and strict teacher Folke who try – each in their own way – to get a wild ninth grade class in a Swedish suburb through their final exams.
