Christina is living in a suburb to Copenhagen. With her class mates Cecilie, Trine and Pernille, a tight-knit gang of girlfriends, she slacks her schoolwork, living mostly for the weekends of gate crashing, getting drunk, experimenting with drugs and scoring guys. But her world is turned upside down when Cecilie's boyfriend Shaid starts hitting on her, and Cecilie mistakenly believes the two of them are making out. Cecilie takes offense at Christina and the other girls turn furious. Suddenly Christina is on the receiving end of the girls' wrath, being bullied. Quickly things are getting out of hand and suddenly everything is too late! Written by
A realistically told story on youngsters life on edge. About mean girls, flocking up against each other. I wouldn't say this is everyday life everywhere, but somewhere this will be the case, like at this school in a Danish city, presumably Copenhagen.
This is the Danish director Christian E. Christiansen's directorial debut. The story is about a group of 16-year-olds girls turning against one of them, Christina, after a misunderstanding caused by one of the girl's boyfriends, a mean guy, and a little lie following that. Christina's friends conclude that she is having an affair, and starts giving her hell.
This is strong stuff, and probably the likes which will get parents chocked, like it did after the premiere in Denmark. Great play all over, and filmed in a realistically documentary style with hand-held camera, though not very shaky, I found this engaging to watch.
A strong coming of age story, not afraid to show what's happening out there in the jungle out there we let our kids every day. Troubled youths making things worse by making it escalate into something quite out of control with theft, drugs, sex and bullying. Well worth a watch if you want to know what's going on out there.
