Kinski's first leading role, a crucial step in her career
I would like to disagree with Carl S. Lau, writer of the first review, to the point that 'Reifezeugnis' was merely a filler movie for Kinski. Her first two movies, 'Falsche Bewegung' and 'Die Braut des Satans', were widely unknown in Germany, and she had merely supporting roles in them. 'Reifezeugnis' was part of the 'Tatort' series, probably the most popular prime time show on German TV then and now (currently acquiring cult status). It was her first leading role and her first exposure to large parts of her country's audience. Everybody was anxious to see whether the daughter of Klaus Kinski, famous from the popular German productions of Edgar Wallace thrillers in the 1960s, was any good or just another actor's daughter. And everybody was raving about her! Therefore I feel 'Reifezeugnis' was an important step in her career.
