If you like movies about bands...

...you'll surely like this. "Die Heartbreakers" is about a bunch of teenagers who live in a bleak part of Germany in the 60's and adore bands like The Kinks and The Rolling Stones. They start their own band called "The Heartbreakers" as an escape from the dull working class life. There's a little love story included, too as Freitag, The Heartbreakers' bandleader, gets to know a girl who becomes both, his lover and his rival as a singer. The acting is fine for a German movie, the music is good, too, although all the songs are performed "too well". No band can play that perfectly live. But, hey, that's just part of the charm of this kind of movies. Actually it's why we watch them.
