Audience Reviews for Die Friseuse

½

While this movie is certainly formulaic and it drags in the middle, when the subplot of Kathi taking in Vietnamese immigrants in order to get the down payment so she can work on her beauty shop, this movie is still really good and it benefits from an incredibly charming performance from Gabriela Maria Schmeide. This woman is so likable that it's really hard not to root for her in her fight against the beauty shop that discriminated against her because of her weight. In a way, there's also some social commentary seeing how one woman tries to go against a bigger business than hers and the struggles she faces in trying to get it off the ground. If there is a problem is that it does start to drag once the Vietnamese immigrants come into play and it sort of dilute the original issue. The movie never stops being good, but it does loses its focus for a bit before getting it back by the climax. The movie also deals with serious issues about weight and how it affects Kathi's health and at first I thought it would've been forced in, but it feels completely natural in the context of the story. And I don't really have much else to say, it is a light and energetic film with an incredibly likable performance from Gabriela. It won't require much brainpower to get through this film, but it is very entertaining nonetheless.
