Critic Reviews for Friend
This topic could have been tackled with greater finesse; Fischer's conclusions feel a bit facile. But his actors do an excellent job portraying young people struggling with an almost manic paranoia.
The Friend, the feature-film debut of the German journalist Elmar Fischer, wades into morally murkier territory, imagining the quandary of a young man who might have befriended one of the terrorists.
First-time filmmaker Fischer examines the issues of Islamic extremism, Western decadence, and fraternal bonds, producing a compelling story that uses character and story ambiguity to appraise the fallibility of thinking one can ever truly know another.
