Storyline

A wild family tale: 15-year-old Mareike lives with her mother Jutta (43), her sister Franca (9), her brother Tim (6) and some chickens in a suburb of Mannheim. Jutta's job as a detective at the local department store doesn't pay much, so the family is always a little short of money. Mareike's ambitious plans to become a model and to participate in an expensive training are therefore problematic. And momentarily Mareike is rather chubby and doesn't really look like the classical beauty. But nevertheless she is prepared to go to any length to have her way and is full of ideas. Jutta hasn't overcome the death of her husband yet, nor have the children. Now she tries to keep her beginning love affair to her colleague Winnie a secret, but doesn't really feel happy about it. Mareike attempts to earn money for her model "education", and jobs around at the weekly market to prove to her mother how serious she is. There she meets Samir, a German-Arabian boy who Mareike immediately falls in love ... Written by Annette Köster

Good capture of teen girl issues and goals and troubles.
10 January 2005 | by (San Jose, CA.) – See all my reviews

This film deals with a teen girls desire to become a model despite some body image problems. Issues of loss of a step father and some conflict with the mother add up to a lot of problems for the main character. Sub plots deal with the mother and her needs and starting a new relationship with a male co-worker. Adding a great deal of humor to the situation are a brother and sister in the family. Diversity issues that you might not think of when thinking of German films are handled as a matter of fact and with skill. The film deals with the body image problem quite well. New problems and goals for the teenager are handled with imagination and creativity that are sadly lacking in many teen films and television programs in this country. It would be great to have this film shown in the USA and get teen feed back for this German film.
