Big Girls Don't Cry
Time Out saysThis German teen drama, not dissimilar to Thirteen, tracks the fissuring relationship between two pals as they tumble towards adulthood. Kati (Mühe) has the tougher time of it with her strict working class parents, but it's pampered Steffi (Herfurth) who goes off the rails when she sees her dad playing away in a nightclub. Framed in 'teen-friendly' filmic trappings - snappy cutting, an imposing pop soundtrack - it turns sensationalist in the end, but the performances add value.
