Une jeunesse allemande

Jean-Gabriel Périot France, 2015

josé neves's rating of the film A German Youth

"Indie" cinema # 9: a German romanticism. It's curious, but undeniable, that to look from this distance towards the events recorded by the film, in this period of economic imperatives becoming imperialist, it sets off a connection with the characters that some German literature consolidated, as Kleist's Michael Kohlhaas.The film has the virtue of not denying it, with rare and essential documents well processed.
