Very special movie
4 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

I saw this little gem of movie making last month at the Mostra International de Cinema - São Paulo (Brazil) and loved it so much. In my humble opinion, it was one of the best of the festival. I was surprised to not find any review here yet.

I didn't know anything related to this project beforehand. I was only attracted by the name of the movie and its intriguing synopsis (about a German teen who "actually" wrote a very famous song). Just like going in a blind date. And what a date!

Everything was so much fun and well done. All the main characters were well acted and engaging, specially the main couple (the real one, heh). Oliver Bröcker looked like Chris Pratt a lot. The music and editing were so good (specially the transition cards between shows).

Without falling in spoiler's territory, let me just say this: as a true fan of Kurt Cobain, I went out of the movie theater VERY emotionally satisfied. He was treated with more trueness, sincerity and tenderness than in any movie before (Last Days tried too hard).

In a nutshell, a movie made with real care and talent by all involved. Should be watched by many people in many countries as possible. Rolf Roring is a special new talent to keep our eyes on.

Congrats and thanks to the filmmakers!
