Dave Oren Ward,
The film (the third of the Reding brothers) is about a German teenager following his identity crisis. The boy, transformed by the usual down-trodden socio-economic conditions of contemporary Europe, becomes a skin head, following the first one's lead. On the other side he befriends with a leftist (a punk) who is gay. This causes more and more conflicts which eventually leads to an atrocious end for the punk. The film offers scenes of homophobic violence by skinheads, and the whole relationship between the skinhead and gay movements (in Germany gay skinheads represent a substantial subculture). Written by
The German skinhead flick, OI! WARNING, was very well received by the public at the Sao Paulo Mostra de Cinema in October 1999. The film written, directed and produced by German twins Dominik and Benjamin Reding, was presented twice, proving itself once again as an audience favorite. It had already won the Air Canada People Award at the 1999 Montreal World Film Festival, and the 1999 Outstanding Emerging Talent Award given by the Directors' Guild of America. The film deals with Janosch, a 17 year old who abandons his Lake Constance home for industrial Dortmund to join Koma, a brewery worker, who is among other things, a kickboxer and skinhead. Janosch is fascinated by Koma, and imitates his lifestyle. After a series of event s, Koma swears revenge on a guy who allegedly burns down his second home. Instead of going all out for revenge too, Janosch sleeps with the supposed culprit, and Koma is a witness to this night of passion. Now Koma's revenge will be very different. The plot therefore throws a new twist into the skinhead flick genre. We now have the bi or gay skinhead flick. As a "szene," as the Germans call it, gay skinheads have existed for years in Berlin, for example. This, however, is the first film to touch the subject. And for that, and the hard work of the Reding twins alone, "Oi! Warning" is worth watching.
