Review

Karsten and Till are teenagers who spend their days trying in vain to wash away their anger and frustration. Till’s girlfriend, Steffi, works part time at a suntan shop. She wants to get away from the suntan shop, but new jobs are hard to come by. Police officer Gunter wants to buy his son a new pair of shoes, but a good pair of shoes is expensive. Heinrich, who owns the snack bar, is always complaining about the violent ways of kids today, but there isn’t much he can do. Based on a true story, the film takes place in a small town, where one day Karsten and Till end up attacking a homeless person and setting him on fire. Director Christian Klandt, who won the Pucheon Film Festival Jury Prize with his film Schaustein’s Final Film in 2008 gives us a detailed yet condensed portrayal of a day in the life in a small German town. The quietness of the small town, and the hopelessness and anger that surrounds its inhabitants, create tension throughout the film. And what we see in the end is youth subculture and the savagery of an indifferent and selfish society.
