It's hardly uncommon for school days to be portrayed in the cinema as the unhappiest days of your life, but it's rarely been done with such astonishing conviction as it is in Afterschool, a needle-sharp, pitch-black comedy from a 25-year-old writer-director, Antonio Campos. The setting is an ivy-clad co-ed prep school not far from New York, a place where the well-groomed pupils stroll across the well-tended lawns to the chapel every morning. There aren't any bullying campaigns or shooting sprees, any gangs or (deliberate) suicides, and yet the pupils are so callous, and the teachers so craven, that adult viewers will be thanking their lucky stars that they've been to their last assembly.

There are several obstacles to enjoying this account of the Viner family's attempts to settle in rural north Herefordshire after relocating from London's Crouch End. To begin with, there's the ghastly punning title, which looms at you like something nasty from the 1970s. After that there's the first anecdote about "an attractive strawberry blonde of indeterminate years" who turns out to be a scarecrow; a patrician little tale that reminds readers how "Best Scarecrow competitions... or Dog with the Waggiest Tail competitions, are taken with deadly seriousness in the country". Finally, there's the grasping zaniness. Chapter two starts: "Whether the doctor and nurses had caught a whiff of my aloe-scented scrotum or not, I must say that when I started writing this book, I didn't expect to embark quite so soon on the story of my snip in Llandrindod Wells."
