Storyline

With the birthday party of the most beautiful girl in the class coming in less than three weeks, the diffident fourteen-year-old teenager, Maik, has a lot on his mind. To further complicate matters, Maik's alcohol-dependent tennis enthusiast mother is in and out of the beauty farm--aka the rehab facility--and his real estate developer father is utterly indifferent. Under those circumstances, the unexpected arrival of the exciting new classmate, Tschick, will create quite a stir, when the class' rejects boldly decide to hit the road in an old "borrowed" light-blue Lada, going from uncool to cool in a split second. Little by little--as Tschick and Maik set off on an unforgettable joyride in East Germany's great outdoors--they will find out the meaning of friendship, and the thrill of the first love. This is going to be, hands down, the best summer ever. Written by Nick Riganas

There is Freedom in the Air
5 January 2018 | by attilatormusSee all my reviews

This is my first movie that I watched from Fatih Akin. Shame on me! I am deeply impressed his innocent language in telling the story of two boys and the other characters. Tschick (Goodbye Berlin) tells a very ordinary story around two teenagers with an amazing beautiful way. I think that the success of the movie is not trying to tell the story from an adult view, on the contrary, telling like a teenager who talks about what happened during the last summer. The tune between sadness and happiness is very balanced. I like movies that not trying to exploit / (ab)use audience's weak points and Tschick (Goodbye Berlin) is also not trying to do this and set the audience free. For me, the main outcome (if we need a message from every movie that we watched) is "to be yourself" and "to accept life and people around you as well as yourself". There are many upsetting around two boy characters but all are experienced not in a melodramatic way but very truthful way like all we experienced when we were young. Anand Batbileg (Tschick) and Tristan Göbel (Maik) play their role perfectly. As I was watching the movie, I have never thought on their performances as "Oh no it is too exaggerated way" or "they are short for the role". I like this movie. It is honest, cheerful, hopeful and very very sentimental. I like sentimental laughter. (*) Mylast note for the admin. It is not possible to write Fatih Akin's surname in its original way. In Turkish we have small "I" and this field doesn't accept it. His surname is not written with "i" but with small "I". You may need fixing this. Thank you!
