A class reunion, 20 years after graduation: Everybody is in a good mood, everybody wants to party, have a good time, quite a few people have speeches there top remind everyone of the good time that never was ... and then Anna, who seems to have felt out of place from the beginning, has her speech, accusing the whole class of bullying her, of making her life hell for 9 full years. At first, the others want to shut her up with empty excuses, but the more concrete she gets in her accusations, the more awkward the situation gets, and eventually, the whole thing gets physical, Anna against the whole class that is, and ultimately, she's dragged out of the room and sat in a cab ...

But that was only a film by artist Anna Odell, a sort of what if-narrative, in real life she was never invited to the class reunion, and now she wants to know why, because she really has been bullied all through high school - so she tracks her old schoolmates down one after the other and shows them, or tries to show them the movie, to capture their reactions and probably make peace with her past ... but most of them are just full of empty excuses or try to be seen in a better light ...

 

The Reunion is, apparently, a film that falls into two parts - and of the two of them the first is the better part by far as it has a narrative arc, a storyline one can really identify with, and is well-written, -played and -executed.

The second part lacks the urgency of the first one, rather shows a woman who can't let go of her past. Sure, there are still a handful really good scenes in the movie, and some characters are well-drawn, but after a time the thing gets repetitive, the joke gets stale, and at times the film quite simply drags.

Despite this though, not at all a bad movie, and very entertaining not only considering its dark subject - but definitely a film that falls short from what it could have been.
