“This could have been an amazing movie. It is nicely shot, music and scenery well done. It is over all enjoyable, donu0026#39;t get me wrong. But the movie script must read like it was written for the male lead Christoph Maria Herbst. And that is the problem of the movie. The surrounding characters are so cliché drenched and roughly skatched – it makes you wonder if the authors didnu0026#39;t have enough time to finish the script.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIu0026#39;m sure they cast great actors, but especially Naimau0026#39;s circle of friends show a pretty distorted image of those young adults. The script missed a great story line here and leaves the actors with lines so weak, they end up looking like they are performing sketches about Ghetto kids.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTo close on a positive note: I felt like they walked the thin line quite well of using the male leadu0026#39;s degrading language and racial slurs. So if you see it on Netflix or free Tv – enjoy the evening and maybe iron your laundry while watching it. But it isnu0026#39;t really movie theater material from my perspective.”
