Stone cold
6 February 2003 | by burgsSee all my reviews

"Das Mådchen Rosemarie" portrays an interesting view of a West German girl's

introduction to the capitalist society in which big companies and money

dominate. I found the film to be very interesting. I thought that the camera angles were very unique...especially in initial bar scene. I thought that moving the camera around the bar, without cutting, was a very unique way of viewing the room and all of the people in it. I think that the characters were acted out very well. Hartog was completely

stone cold. He rarely ever showed emotion on his face, other than deep

thought. Even in the end, when Rosemarie was attempting to get him to leave

his wife for her, he showed very little emotion. This was one aspect of the film that stood out to me. I particularly enjoyed the two young men who used their musical talents to help Rosemarie and later Rebecca on their way into the "big time." Although these two were essentially gold-digging scumbags, they introduced a fair amount of

humor and unique songs to the film. A perfect example of this humor was when they "tried out" various girls to see which would be the best to take Rosemarie's spot in their trio of sorts. In the middle of the movie, I thought the plot was a little shaky, but in the end it all came together perfectly. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the film and thought it portrayed capitalism wonderfully.
