  1. Na Talia's rating of the film The German Friend

    Viel Style, wenig Schauspiel und schlechtes Storytelling.

  2. AVA's rating of the film The German Friend

    Auch eine gute Möglichkeit zur Aufarbeitung der immer wieder präsenten Rassismusproblematik.

  3. Stefan Drees's rating of the film The German Friend

    I don't understand what Meerapfel wants to show. She opens so many possible storylines (post-war generation, political film, love story, drama, jewish identity etc.) but is not able to handle them in a convincing way. The result is a confusing film with sometimes very creepy dialogues. And the music is German film academy schoolbook shit: If you have a sad looking person, take piano arpeggios with strings etc.

  4. Ju's rating of the film The German Friend

    I am struggling to see the film since half of the voices are dubbed into German! Yes, the boy's parents do speak in German in the original, but not the girl's family, they are dubbed and it is so distracting!
