Morris from America is a coming of age story of a black kid growing up in Germany, what part, honestly I forgot (my German doesn't exist). The movie was great. It's a coming of age story and who doesn't like that. I liked how Morris is constantly trying to find his footing in Germany. He's angry but he still find a small glimpse of hope in his new found friend, Katrin. Katrin is what I'm guessing is a typical German teenage girl. She hates her mom, does what she isn't supposed and has a strange thing for Morris. By no means is this a love story. If anything it was a cautionary tale of what unrequited love can do to someone. All in all it was a decent move and worth the watch.
