Kati and Steffi are best friends since childhood. But as they step into adulthood, both their perfect friendship and their personalities get harshly tested by a series of unfortunate events; mainly caused by Steffi finding out her father wasn't quite faithful to her mother, and the two girls getting hit by the consequences of her delirious revenge plans. When things get out of hand, the two girls find themselves in the middle of a mess, and Kati starts questioning whether or not Steffi is really so precious to her. Where will Steffi's plans of penalizing her father's "evil" lover will end up..? Will the girls' friendship be saved..? Written by
This is a German teen movie about two friends (Ana Marie Muhe and Karoline Herfurth)navigating their high school years. When one of the girls finds out her father is having an affair, she vindictively tries to set her father's lover's daughter up with a sleazy photographer, who may or not be responsible for the mysterious disappearance of another girl.
In America these kinds of films are usually pretty juvenile, and pretty much unwatchable to anyone over 25, OR they are overly melodramatic and alarmist ("Kids", "Thirteen). This movie generally avoids either of these extremes. Muhe didn't do much after this, but I'm surprised Herfurth didn't do more (she does have a small part In Brian DePalma's 2013 movie "Passion"). She is really good here as a vindictive "mean girl" who manages to be almost downright evil without ever being entirely unsympathetic (She's also definitely not hard to look at, even here when she was only about 18). This is a little more racy than most American teen movies, but no one is going to confuse it with the infamous, exploitative German "schoolgirl-reports" either (although some aspects of the plot seem to be right out of one).
I guess if you're going to watch a teen movie in the first place, this is a pretty recommendable one
