ABOUT THE FILM

A documentary-style short on the daily life of German adolescents and their inner cleavages. The young Luca, in a phase of an inner diffusion, doesn't belong to any group nor possess strong feelings toward anything but his love to his little brother Alex, who tries to fix the complexity of life with his camera. Meanwhile, a group of youngsters discuss a friend-murder article at a party, realizing the discordance among the guests. The film deals with the rise of neo-Nazism in Germany and the political and ideological leanings of the country's youth by highlighting the youngsters' apathy, violence and sense of isolation.

政治的なバックボーンがあるので、本当のところは分からないかも知れないけれども、ラストカットがとても美しかった。

Sensitive but sublimely violent, exploring the border between personal fate and the masking of the self. Impressive acting and beautiful camera-work, set in a disturbing, astonishing atmosphere. Thank you for this entry.

This is because I feel guilty for putting other people's films down and voting for my own.
