How to make a German comedy without getting obnoxious...
As an avid hater of the German movie scene I was most surprised to see this really hilarious, light comedy about young girls in their raid for the lost orgasm. Director Dennis Gansel, totally unknown til this movie, succeeds in creating likeable characters and a decent plot which of course is all about love, rejection and the unbearable pains of puberty and adolescence, and which is taking place in an environment which could be just next door - a fact that may be the answer to why this movie is so charming in its simpleness. The gags are well-dosed, but are not getting too rude like many American comedies nowadays (Scary Movie comes to mind).
Most noticeable are the young faces Gansel introduces to the big screen: Diana Amft, Karoline Herfurth and Felicitas Woll are totally convincing in their roles and a wonderful diversion from the omnipresent but so unpleasant diva of German film Katja Riemann. Gansels film does not use anyone of the nearly incestous German film avantgarde, and that's what makes this movie so fresh and joyful to watch. A fresh breeze is what German film needs since Soenke Wortmanns stopped doing independent movies - maybe Gansel is here to revitalize German comedy?
