Goofs

At one point, Jan gets into Elsa's car as she is parked on a busy street. This is shot from inside the car and, through the windscreen can be seen, parked directly in front of Elsa, a Mk.1 Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet. In the next wide-shot of Elsa pulling out of the parking spot, the car directly in front of her is an Opel Tigra, with the Golf now in front of the Opel. See more »

A controversial topic handled analytically, rather than exploitively
11 November 2009 | by (Berkeley, California) – See all my reviews

Angelina Macarone's 'Puhish Me' (US title: German title is 'Verfogt,' Hounded) is another German short film released by the sadly defunct Picture This!, like Thomas Stuber's excellent 'Teenage Lust.'. Its topic is how a 50-year-old counselor becomes involved in a sadomasochistic relationship with one of her 16-year-old charges that he imposes on her; it's one of several Picture This! releases that might sound like exploitation, but is clear-eyed analysis. The narrative develops not in terms of titillating acts but as a fulfillment of mutual needs that both have but neither understands. The excellent performances of Maren Kroymann as the woman and Kostja Ulmann as the boy are very convincing. The film-making lacks the art of 'Teenage Angst,' but that plainness contributes to the sense that this is a

no-nonsense look at a taboo subject -- an approach more likely to be seen in a small European film than in any American product, and a work of interest salvaged from the Locarno Festival secondary competition by Picture This!. This is the first time I've seen S&M in a film depicted in a way that truly made me relate to the participants and try to understand them, see them as acting out a raw deeply personal need rather than merely role-playing.

'Punish Me' is a recent release by Picture This!, the indie distributor of mostly foreign coming-of-age and gay-related films (e.g. 'Garçon Stupide,' 'Come Undone,' 'Aimée and Jaguar,' 'Before the Fall') that as of Nov. 2009, after 13 years, has closed its doors. This and Stuber's 'Teenage Angst' are just two examples that Picture This! is a niche loss that will be felt both by viewers and by the industry.
