The Philosophers


Johnny's comments:

The Philosophers is a drama set in a philosophy class in an international school in Jakarta. In the final class where each student's final marks are to be determined, teacher Mr. Zimit (James D'Arcy) sets a challenge where only 10 of the 20 students in the class would be allowed to live in an underground shelter with him after a nuclear apocalypse. Each student is given a job and a trait that may or may not be useful in the shelter. Zimit makes it easier by 'executing' 10 students, people he sees no use for, but this goes wrong and causes the rest to panic and leave Zimit is left out of the shelter, the only person with the exit code. As the students slowly die off, it becomes clear that saving the world is more complicated than it seems, but star student Petra (Sophie Lowe) has her own plans, which may not be to Zimit's liking.

Always going to be tough to illustrate philosophical conundrums in a movie and this movie has it's problems, mainly that it feels more like a social experiment than a movie. While some of the answers are interesting, particularly Petra's 'outside the box' solution, it still feels more like homework than entertainment. The cast is fairly diverse (including 5 Australian actors), although for a school in Jakarta there is a lack of Asian students which seems a bit bizarre. The Philosophers isn't for those looking for a 'fun', entertaining time, but it isn't without its charm.
