Storyline

Kati and Steffi are best friends since childhood. But as they step into adulthood, both their perfect friendship and their personalities get harshly tested by a series of unfortunate events; mainly caused by Steffi finding out her father wasn't quite faithful to her mother, and the two girls getting hit by the consequences of her delirious revenge plans. When things get out of hand, the two girls find themselves in the middle of a mess, and Kati starts questioning whether or not Steffi is really so precious to her. Where will Steffi's plans of penalizing her father's "evil" lover will end up..? Will the girls' friendship be saved..? Written by Exiled Archangel®

The tragedy of modern teenagers
18 December 2004 | by YolgieSee all my reviews

One of those films I advise parents to watch when their daughters become this special age. Although I absolutely adore this film, I think it could have been just as good with a little less profanity and a little more about the implications and results of actions. Especially drug use is somehow displayed a little too carelessly. Anna Mariah Mühe is a gorgeous girl with the most beautiful eyes ever to be seen on a cinema screen. Just for that the film is absolutely watchable.

All together a really good film with many highs, but not advisable for an afternoon with the family.
