The DVD-release is expected in summer 2006 See more »

Taunting to the max.
21 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

To make it short: Lilli is the funniest, most entertaining taunt I've seen in a loooong time. Hey, no doubt: It is a hyper-low-budget trash movie, so do not expect super high quality images. Lilli is said to be shot in 1999 and you can see that. The editing and overall style follows the 1998 original "Lola Rennt", which was an international success and famed at that time for its unique storytelling, with fast cuts and hand-held camera, and given that Lilli probably had less than 1% of the budget of Lola, the results here are plainly awesome.

But - of course - it is not technical aspects that make Lilli more than worth watching. It's the pure fun seeing all the situations from Lola replayed, but now twisted, mocked, and ridiculed. The opening scene shows Lilli (played by Bernd Gleiter, a guy, and he didn't even try to play a girl) trying to have phone conversation with her boyfriend, wrapped up in telephone cables. The short flashbacks showing her using a vacuum to clean the lawn are CULT.

I've watched Lilli at the Hamburg Shortfilm Slam (where it was voted "best short") and can't believe that there is still no distributor for the DVD (by June '06), though the trivia section claims that Lilli will be released in summer '06. If I can buy stocks of that distributor, LET ME KNOW!
