    Sebastian Schipper's debut film - the man that did one af my absolute favorite films "Victoria" in 2015. The vibes are at times similiar as this takes place over a few hours, but not shot in real time, though. Three friends has one last night out before one of them leaves forever. They drive around in a fancy car and get into some trouble with a few gangs among other things. I liked it a lot - it's short and sweet, some cool music and some really great characters. Funny at times, but alos very real and quite sad at times. 7 out of 10 fussball tables.

    A la veille du depart de la ville "pour toujours" de l'un d'eux, la miteuse mais rocambolesque viree nocturne de trois jeunes prolos hambourgeois. Un film sur l'amitie a la realisation assez atmospherique. Entre le genial et l'irritant.

    I can't believe after so many years I found this film! Stunning! Still remember: when they wake up at the end of the film, a hollow sounding organ blasts. There's the re-occuring German theme: self struggling against an known emptiness they don't necessarily have to face.

    I always feel a emotion like this movie, when I get back to my hometown and meet my friends.

    I saw this movie at a film festival in DC. I have a copy of the German DVD and have been dying to get my hands on a subtitled version (which they sadly don't make).
