Girl from Nowhere is a serie that debuts now on Netflix with a mission: to show how the school system that is used in most countries is bankrupt (watch here).
The systematic allegation of bullying, harassment, racism and abuse of power that always appear in the media, both by students and teachers, proves this. What this production does is take 13 cases of the type and show it as a chronological line, linking the script through a character, who ends up showing these problems and resolving them in their own way.
This script scheme is interesting, because while it does not tire the audience in a single plot that might sound slow paced, we cling to Nanni as she recounts the crimes committed in the school environment. She doesn’t mince words, is bold and even somewhat anarchist. That’s in her favor, as the cases we’ve been tracking in the 13 episodes of this season are really shocking. They go from heavy bullying to harassment made by teachers. In all of them, she solves things in her own way.
The problems that Girl from Nowhere demonstrates from time to time are related to its direction, both of scene and art. While the management team ends up “banging their heads against the wall” when it comes to defining a unique language for the series – and there are obvious differences in this direction, the art direction sometimes slips into the creation of scenarios. Some are very fake, even artificial. Luckily, there are few slips, but the most aware people will surely notice.
Girl from Nowhere, therefore, is a good entertainment for those who like revenge plots, but also serves as an alert to the dangers that surround women, who most of the time, end up defenseless against unpleasant situations. Here, at least, they may feel avenged.
