Well acted, scored and paced, and striking a careful balance between social realism and hip street thriller.
A tragic cycle, persuasively rendered in a movie that's neatly achieved, if small in scale.
A grainy piece of Berlin realism by Detlev Buck which follows a 15-year-old boy caught between a rock and a hard place.
A matter-of-fact socio-realist style and some strong central performances making this a shocking German drama.
Done no favours by its camera-phone aesthetic, Tough Enough doesn't have much of a sell-by date.
The inevitably brutal denouement provides a satisfactory close to a smartly observed and exhilarating movie.
Director Detlev Buck may be well versed in comedies but he manages to pull off a neat little drama thanks to some credible performances.
Engaging, impressively directed and ultimately disturbing teen drama with a strong central performance from David Kross.
Detached, muted colours, a swirling soundtrack and a well-tuned script lend polish to the grimy urban location.
Uses the familiar with enough flair and technical swagger to make it exciting all over again.
An assured, uncompromising and often tense piece of social commentary on Germany's "invisible" multi-ethnic underclasses.
This German drama about a boy moving to a pretty bad part of Berlin with his mum is trying hard to give a realistic look at the current situation of poor parts of larger cities, where kids have little perspective or motivation and parents are not much of a good example either. The acting is excellent, newcomer David Kross even moved on to shoot with Kate Winslett. The story comes up with several gut wrenching and gloomy situations, most of which could easily happen, but doesn't entirely manage to avoid stereotypes (bullies, drugs, organized crime). Maybe because that's just how it is these days. Kudos to the movie for not being entirely pessimistic or depressing but realistic and dark enough to leave a knot in your stomach when the end credits roll. That's uncomfortable, realistic film making, no popcorn entertainment. Great soundtrack, too.
