User Reviews

2 May 1999 | by J. SteedSee all my reviews

It is not clear whether this was meant as a melodrama or as a Problemfilm that concerns itself with difficult adolescent girls. In the end it is neither: it ends like a trash thriller, while exploitation is constantly in the background. Vajda's direction is only competent and does not do anything to make an already so-so script work. The film could have been dismissed were it not that there is Luise Ulrich, German star since the 30's is in the cast.
