Critic Reviews for This Ain't California
"This Ain't California" offers a vivid immersion in the hidden skateboarding culture of the former East Germany.
A trove of home videos, vintage commercial and propaganda footage and black-and-white animation dress up this energetic if somewhat unfocused look at the birth of skateboarding in the German Democratic Republic.
It ain't bad, though all that detritus detracts from a far more interesting history lesson on repression and rebellion that's left on the periphery.
Martin Persiel's splendid "documentary" could well be subtitled "And It Ain't the Truth."
Whether faux found footage or not, This Ain't California is a joy ride, and not only for skateboarders or anyone else who experienced life on either side of the Berlin Wall.
