What are people saying?

  •'s rating of the film Heavy Girls

    Dicke Mädchen ging einmal um die Welt und wurde überall gefeiert! Ein Publikumsliebling und ein Film, der beweist, dass das kulturgeförderte Deutschland doch noch nicht so ausgetrockent ist, wie ich denke. Dicke Mädchen von Axel Ranisch hat 500 Euro gekostet.... mehr Berliner Mumblecore Produktionen in unserer Film List auf Bienvenue!
