Storyline

The film (the third of the Reding brothers) is about a German teenager following his identity crisis. The boy, transformed by the usual down-trodden socio-economic conditions of contemporary Europe, becomes a skin head, following the first one's lead. On the other side he befriends with a leftist (a punk) who is gay. This causes more and more conflicts which eventually leads to an atrocious end for the punk. The film offers scenes of homophobic violence by skinheads, and the whole relationship between the skinhead and gay movements (in Germany gay skinheads represent a substantial subculture).

One of the best and most important German movies of the 1990s!
13 October 2001 | by DJ InfernoSee all my reviews

Everyone who wants to see this should be prepared that "Oi! Warning" is no Hollywood-cliché like "American History X" which deals with a predictable "bad-skinhead-becomes-imprisoned-makes-friendship-with-a-negro-and-turns-to-good-man"-plot. This movie is pure realism, almost like a documentary! The film is shot in black/white, sometimes the pictures are pretty elegant and stylish, often very similar to a video clip. Mainly this film is a portrait about a fascinating but dangerous subculture yet. However, "Oi! Warning" is too objective to deal with old-fashioned clichés, because it shows them skinheads as men who believe in there lifestyle and their ideals. Don´t think of searching any pseudo-moral or comments, I promise, you won´t find it here! A very good film with an explosive theme and a provoking un-happy ending!!
