Set in 1943, Stig and his family have just moved from Stockholm to a smaller town called Malmo, and at the school he just enrolled in there is a new teacher for English, Viola. Stig is surrounded by the blossoming puberty of his peers, and he spends most of his time talking about sex during class. Overtime, Stig develops a crush on Viola, and when he makes a sexual advance, she gives in and they begin to have an affair. As this is happening, a lot happens in Stig's life, and everything is at the least a learning experience, for better or worse.While the plot has some exciting moments, everyone surrounding Stig is a bit more interesting than himself, but we get a sense of how he grows into a more mature young man and that the passionate affair may not be all that life is about. Considering the consequences, he finds out that love can be just as harsh as the rest of the world. Viola begins to lose it a bit after Stig tries to break off the affair after hooking up with a girl his own age, but she retaliates, and you can bet the Stig regrets what he has done. Coming from a poor family and having an older brother volunteer to fight in the war, it all amounts to a desire to learn from his mistakes and expand his knowledge as well as develop more sincere relationships, and not end up like everyone else.My favorite aspect of the film was probably the character of Kjell, a failing salesman, alcoholic and classical music aficionado who would rather be called Frank, because everyone likes Frank Sinatra. He also happens to be Viola's husband, and Stig manages to learn a bit from him about women's stockings, Mahler and inventing gin dispensing bird clocks, while getting it on with his wife in the meantime. I wish I could have found myself in a more valuable learning environment like that.In the end, Stig takes all he has learned from his schooling, even literally.

The film's premise was quite interesting and definitely had the potential to be one of Hitchcock's best but once you get in the film, we start to find a lacking of interesting characters, particularly the film's villain, and the events that unfolded didn't create any sense of real tension, making some scenes feel dull and uninviting. Hitchcock couldn't create this sense of weight towards the man that is targeted for assassination; so I ended up just shrugging most of the time when the discussion about the assassination was brought up. There were a couple of moments that did have me excited for a bit and that's the scene that involved chairs being thrown, and the build up towards the assassination during the film's third act; but they don't take up a large amount of time of the film, and they came too rare in order for me to feel content with this film.I had a problem with the way Hitchcock edited this film, as events just seem to transition suddenly, leaving me feeling disoriented of place and time. Along with this, the film's running time only goes for about 75 minutes, so the film's pacing was quite fast. I think if Hitchcock slowed the film down and let the film's writing be a bit more fleshed out then this would have been a much better experience.The film's photography was dismissive. It couldn't create this sense of tension that the film sorely needed, and it lacked any style that is commonly found in the director's great films. The film's score wasn't all that memorable and at times felt a little forced in order to have us feel something during specific scenes, like maybe the composer knew the film needed an over exaggerated score in order to make the film remotely interesting.The film's acting was a hit and miss for me. Peter Lorre as the film's antagonist was quite good in the role, but his acting ability couldn't carry the role enough to make it remotely interesting; the blame for this failure is on the film's writers. Leslie Banks was disappointing in the lead role, as he just seems to say the lines and do what he needs to do in order to move the film forward; there simply was no sense of passion found in his acting.The Man Who Knew Too Much was a disappointment in almost all levels but thankfully, Hitchcock makes up for it with a thrilling and involving experience in his next film, The 39 Steps.
