Storyline

Isi (27) is stucked in a quater-life-crisis. With a graphic diploma in one hand and a drink in the other, Isi is stucked in a strange place 'inbetween' univeristiy and real life. This place would seem bleak and lonely, if her very best friend Lotte wasn't there with here. But that changes abruptly when Lotte not only finds a real job but also falls in love with her colleague Leo, effectively ending their live as a twosome. One second later Lotte is a vegan grown up and Isi's live is turning backwards. She has to move into a filthy flat-share despairing over the antics of her "musician" flatmate Klausi and the slightlithy crazy medical student Daniel. While Isi is working on a Graphic Novel from Scott Fitzgeralds "The Beautiful and Damned", she starts to realize, that adulthood has arrived, like a runaway train, and there's no getting out of its way. She find's herself in an almost awesome, love-hate relationship with her twenties, which is "pretty far from okay".

My summary being a more accurate translation from the German title. But pretty far from ok describes the movie very apt indeed. Also be very aware that since this is a German movie, the German rating is lower because they don't stigmatize nudity and or sex. Which you can find plenty of in the film (mostly audio and therefor offscreen but some quite vivid even for just a few seconds).

The movie is about a crisis, to find oneself, to know ones place in society and to realize ones personal goals. Career and otherwise that is. The drama works and there are quite a few relationships to be explored. It may be slow moving but still enticing if you are into it.
