The aura of girls doesn't need the sun to glow. That is the essence of RP Kahl's documentary "Sunday Girls", which follows four young actresses - Laura Tonke, Nicolette Krebitz, Katharina Schuettler and Inga Birkenfeld - through different seasons and landscapes. Between naiveté and experience, wishes and wants the four women tell about their jobs with great honesty. They talk about theatre, about the myths of cinema and the magic of making the first film. They show how one needs to become stubborn and uncompromising to avoid getting lost in the demands of contemporary media. These four portraits never get too close and leave the women enough freedom to experiment in front of the camera. The struggle between acting and authenticity is always visible and makes this documentary so utterly fascinating to watch. Written by Anonymous

loving portrait of German indie actresses
2 May 2008 | by kimkinoSee all my reviews

MÄDCHEN AM SONNTAG/Sunday GIRLS is a loving portrait of four lovely young actresses who work beyond the mainstream industry in Germany – might be only the big roles for them haven't yet been written. In this intimate film portrait by RP Kahl they are eventually put into limelight – a light which focuses on their personal highlights as well as their defeats, their troubles and the mechanisms of film business. It is high time that these young women, namely Laura Tonke, Nicolette Krebitz, Katharina Schüttler and Inga Birkenfeld are given a speaking tube! BecausE they are the German pendants to Chloe Sevigny or Juliette Lewis in the US, Charlotte Gainsbourg in France, and Asia Argento in Italy. Included on this DVD is a great extra that turns the table: now it is the actresses who interview their director. Very recommendable!
