The movie is inspired by the novel “Black Box” by Mario Giordano and is based on a true-life story.
During a scientific experiment 12 ordinary people willingly become “inmates” of prison for two weeks, while 8 same volunteers become guards. The first group has to follow the rules of prison regime, while the second group has to keep order. But human nature comes into its own and the experiment gets out of control. Guards relish the power by humiliating prisoners. As a result, revolt is brewing in the prison. Action of “The Experiment” lasts a long time and features nothing special at first, but the movie is gaining momentum later, becoming an exciting and a premonitory thriller about a human violence.”The Experiment” is an opportunity for the viewer to avoid the madness that might seize you if you can take full advantage of somebody’s fate.
One hundred thousand of employees, two hundred thousand of whistle-blowers. Together they are sword and shield of party, famous Stasi. Suspicion is their method. The lives of others is their profession. The famous writer and dramatist Georg Draiman would live to the end of his days, getting fondled by the attention of grateful readers and absolutely uninteresting for special services, if not an affair with a famous theater actress. Too famous to stay hidden by the powerful official of the Central Committee. So, that way experts from the Stasi appear in life of Draiman.
Even in such conditions, in which live main characters, there is a place for humanity. The movie will be useful for those who are disappointed in people and believe that evil always triumph over good. We can learn a lot from this movie, because a justice theme is always present in our lives under any political currents.
