a very realistic and catching teenage movie
10 July 2000 | by (Bonn, Germany) – See all my reviews

It seems like Europe has finally developed its own style of teenage movies, which is far more appealing to me than the American one. There are indeed a few similarities to "Fucking Åmål", and at first I thought "Crazy" to be just some kind of a German copy of it. But then I found, it is mainly the realism and the straightness that is similar to FA; and I consider this as a new European style. Most of the feelings and emotions of this film have also appeared in my youth, and they most probably will in all upcoming generations, too. So, the film is very catching for everybody, especially males, who have been a teenager. Some of the people in the audience even shed a tear at certain moments. The only thing I thought to be a little unrealistic and even annoying is the way the sixteen year old boys seemed to think about god. I would think that most boys of that age, unless being raised in a strict religious environment, talk about god in a less reflected way. But maybe this is a typical Bavarian phenomena, or the producers wanted to push chances of receiving an US-American academy award.
