Astounding first feature
21 January 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

What at first could be seen as an exercise in visceral coming of age style/form -- transcends its usual structure and overarching style with extreme wit, scenes of truthful observation, fine and natural performance and occasional bursts of unexpected fantasy.

An average director could have made this story less than riveting, but in the hands of talented newcomer Pia Marais, we are left with something brutally hilarious, alienating and tender. Never sentimental.

The casting is superb. Textured faces and unexpected choices. They drift across the kinetic editing style like ghostly apparitions unaware of the camera's close proximity.

Best German feature I have seen in the last few years.
