I've been watching German movies a lot. I like the ones made in East Germany before 1989. This German movie, alaska.de, which I watched in German without subtitles, having a good command of the language as a former guest worker, sounded warning bells in the opening few frames. The camera work was atrocious. So grainy, it looked like it was the work of amateurs. You couldn't make out the features of most of the characters it was so bad.
As for the so-called plot, it was practically non-existent. This girl goes to stay with her father and falls in with the wrong crowd of total misfits. Some other reviewer maintained that the movie "never gets bleak and depressing", but I was mighty depressed after watching it, as it was so bleak.
