The best German movie I have ever watched as it is very realistic. It brings back memories, as I too was a member of a three-guys gang. After moving to Jordan and then coming back to Germany after 2 years, I too was out of all the trouble and wanted to stay out of it. This movie reflects my life. Not 100%, but the friendship between me and my friends is portrayed as if I was looking into a mirror.
