Gut!
19 August 2008 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

So I saw this movie at a German film festival because... well, it was the most appealing of all to be honest, but I was quite happy with my choice.

The story is set around Bica who happens to be a teenage thief (because of poverty) under the "protection" of Cristu a former police man turned to crime for God knows what reason, also important to the story is her once victim of crime, a pretty girl named Milka that after some fortunate event she becomes her best friend, also there's Micu who's another kid under the tutelage of Cristu as a thief and of course there's Bica's Love interest Andrej.

Let's go an say that the style of the movie is not quite set to be controversial, of course it's a strong movie but it doesn't look like it from the first time seeing it, I mean, there's stronger flicks that share the style (like "The heart is deceitful above all things " or even "kids") but that doesn't mean it's a bad movie.

The direction is smooth and straight to the point, nothing too fancy or too confusing, you always know what the director wants you to see and it's logical, it's self explanatory and it works well, period.

The acting is incredibly well done all around, sometimes I forgot I was watching a movie just because I got so dragged into the story and photography which is set to make you feel like it could be in Germany, Poland or in any other country around the world.

I only have one complaint though and it's the use of some German hip hop song at the end of the movie that I feel (and this is a completely personal opinion) that it was kinda shoe-fit into it, an instrumental piece would have worked better in my opinion, but again, that's just me.

To sum it all up, it's a good movie, it's a good story that doesn't feel that slow and if you have the chance and you want a "reality" movie then this is a good choice.
