I mean, I don’t really know German, but the dialect they’re talking here is even less comprehensible than usual.
Anyway, it’s a kinda old-fashioned film. An “issue” movie. The issue this week is: Is putting too much pressure on a child prodigy a good idea?
(I’ll let you guess the answer.)
It’s all a bit uninspiring. Pedestrian cinematography, plodding actors and an eye-roll-inducing plot. It’s not completely charmless, though.
It wasn’t obvious at the beginning, but I think it tries to aim at making a mad-cap feel-good fantasy, but it’s all so plodding.
It’s at least three hours too long.
