Overlong student film
28 February 1999 | by dylgraySee all my reviews

This is an overlong student film, obviously conceived by a middle-class German male in his 20s, probably hailing from a small- to medium-sized provincial city. The film just reeks of that sensibility, which anyone who has been to Germany (or Mallorca, or Ibiza) in the past ten years will catch whiff of within the opening three minutes. Limp attempts to shock with sex, dialogue, and drugs, get old very fast in this one. The best thing in it is the female lead, who manages to maintain a commendable degree of freshness and believeability long after we've stopped caring about her counterpart, or anything else in this immature effort.
