Storyline

One day. One night. A group of teenagers struggles to find their way in a world that offers them few choices. In 24 hours, Mike will leave for the army, following in his father's footsteps. His last day around family and friends turns into a war of emotions. His girlfriend Valerie, angry at him for leaving, rejects him. As he grapples with her decision, his friends are making their own bids for a better life. Phil, a smalltime drug dealer, is working for the big score that will set him up for good. Terry is trying to enter a corporate world she's unprepared for, but already understands the corruption the system asks for. Steve wants to free himself from his abusive father, decides to kill him and tries to get a gun. As the story unfolds, frustration erupts in a night of shattering violence, self-destruction and self-discovery. A closely photographed, metaphorical kaleidoscope of characters on the brink of growing up, facing the need to build a future, facing the past. A conflict of ... Written by Reverse Angle

shocking but true
2 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i saw the film at the Seoul film festival where it also won the Jury Award. everybody was shocked and amazed by it somehow. long discussion after the screening with the director. not that you haven't seen anything like it before, but its well acted, well filmed and well told. i personally like how it explores its characters, building up to the climax of the last half an hour, the pace increasing and characters and story lines crashing. watch it yourself - you won't be disappointed. strange that a German director has to make such a film, but maybe it needs that objective distance for a realistic and true film like this one.
