The Lollipop Monster Teaser Trailer. Ziska Riemann‘s Lollipop Monster (2011) teaser trailer stars Ziska Riemann, Jella Haase, Sarah Horvath, Nicolette Krebitz, and Sandra Borgmann. Lollipop Monster‘s plot synopsis: “Meet Ari and Oona, the two 15 year olds at the centre of Lollipop Monster. They both hail from dysfunctional families though they deal with problems very differently: Ari acts out for attention, sleeping with older men while Oona bottles up her feelings choosing to take out her anger with cutting. The two are opposites who find some sense of normalcy in their friendship until “something happens that threatens their friendship at its very roots.”
It should be interesting to see how the psychological issues of the two girls are explored, especially since its root is the same for the both of them. How will Ziska Riemann deal with Oona’s cutting, keeping her age in mind?

Ziska Riemann's new punk-rock teenage angst movie, called Lollipop Monster, is about two German girls, Ari and Oona, that rebel against their unhappy home lives and "hunt" through the "jungle" of the city.
Throughout the film, the girls listen to their favorite rock band, and its leader, the voodoo-ish "Baron," while the music acts as a backdrop to their imaginary hunting trips through the jungle.
I love this kind of post-trainspotting, rebel-girl, Ghost World kind of music-driven film, especially when (as in this one) there appears to be a violent and bloody ending. The director, Riemann, has a background in animation, so I'd expect some of that in the film, as well as lots of music - she makes her own and directs her own music videos. Check out the stunning photos which show the awesome colors and characters by which the girls are surrounded.
This film will be out in Germany August 25th, »
