He becomes a loyal friend and remains by her side when events spiral down for Luca in her darkest of moments
This is an interesting German movie. Luca, the protagonist is facing exams for high school diploma. She tries to learn along with an older guy. She has a dog that cares dearly and uplifts her after years in which didn't feel good.
The movie explores her relationships with various friends, some of which are slacking or weird. Also, the strenuous relation with her mother. We get to know her grandmother.
All in all, it is an interesting development of character. And the movie is finally uplifting for those who pass a worse part in their lives.
There are sparkling and funny moments. There are a few predictable moments (with the angry boyfriend) and the ending loses steam.
