Alaska.de (2000 - Esther Gronenborn): *
21 March 2016 | by tmdainesSee all my reviews

Shoddy shaky camera-work from the get go points to this being a frustrating experience throughout. The plot is wafer-thin. Girl moves to new area, falls in with the wrong crowd, happens to come across something she shouldn't, and is forced to keep quiet. The characters all come across as clichés of teenage angst. There's the bad egg, the good guy at heart who has fallen in with the wrong crowd, the big fat oaf and the girl who feels as if the whole world is crumbling in on her. The scene at the bookshop where books and reading is made out to be the antithesis of teenage cool is cringeworthy beyond belief. There's nothing to recommend this on.
