For a German production not bad, but to much a lecture
1 March 2007 | by gattlerSee all my reviews

This movie was filmed in my hometown Munich and also in Warsaw, Poland. Since i know Munich quite a bit and i never saw one single graffiti piece drawn on a train or any serious graffiti somewhere in the city, i suppose the movie was entirely shot at Warsaw. The film is something else than the usual scene/underground releases, because it offers a story with characters. They perform pretty good. The music is superb, better than expected. Unfortunately the pieces are shown way too short. The story remembers me strongly of Beat Streat. You have the newborn child, you have the crew with the angry guy who's pieces got crossed. On the other hand, the Graffiti seems real with Wholetrain which it wasn't in BeatStreet.

Unfortunately, the movie annoys in the end, when the only whole train of the entire movie shows up. They show the train mixed with shots of some poor guys cleaning the train and destroying the piece of art - before you can even can get a longer glimpse of it. That lecture was unneeded and seemed out of place. Overall its a nice German graffiti drama with great acting and great music, the story is well constructed but offers nothing new.
