Magical
14 November 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

There're not many films around these days that could be described as sheer magic.

Nimmermeer - as I understand - is the premiere work of a young German director and it was made when he was still at filmschool. Alas! I don't want to know what we have to expect from this guy if this was really his first film!

The simple story revolves around a young boy in an ancient fishing village who must come to terms and start a new life after his father's gone. The storyline is linear, simple and one-dimensional - but everything else is pure magic. No film I've seen in a long time has so beautifully and imaginatively conjured up the spirit of childhood and innocence.

The young director has a firm grasp on actors and locations and supported by great camera work has created a unique and mesmerizing world. So if you're into haunting, dark, fairy-tale like images and Burtonesque atmosphere - watch it!
