Plot synopsis
The story of a school romance that in “adult” years is destined to be battered by various trials that commence with the graduation ball; an event described by the director as a “crazy provocation on the part of the parents, who want their children to start their adult lives happy and rich”. Classmates is a movie about young people and for them, and it deals with their first efforts to find themselves in their adult lives, their wavering attachment to love, their liberation fromthe views of their parents, and their experiences of feelings and their innermost nature.
