A beautiful movie
10 April 2013 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I finally had the chance to watch "Auf Der Suche" (Looking for Simon). Unfortunately the movie seems to be really unknown to a wider audience which is a pity! Probably there was not enough promotion.

It is a kind of coming of age and gay interest movie. Nico Rogner delivers good acting alongside Corinna Harfouch, who is a brilliant actress from Germany.

Maybe I reviewed the movie too subjective, because I'm friends with Nico in real life.

Give this movie some time to develop when watching; you won't be disappointed.
