Truthfully Scary
17 March 2011 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

This documentary is a sample of how things really are for a black person or any Auslander (foreigner) in 21st century Germany.

Although the main character of this movie exposes himself to places and situations that are purposefully provoking, still it shows how even today, the mentality and overall defensive attitude against foreigners still exists in most white societies of Europe, including of course the German one.

I watched the whole movie with a knot in my chest as I kept asking myself, what is so wrong about someone different? What triggers such fear and repulsion?

Although this documentary feels more like a anthropology student experiment from the production value point of view, it still fulfills its goal to transmit its main argument: Racism seems inherent to most Europeans.

It is very entertaining and educational for anyone wondering about an insight into contemporary German psique regarding foreigners.
