While Janik’s parents have always done everything right in their life, Samuel has not been so lucky in his life so far. He comes from a broken background and Janik’s parents practically adopted Samuel. In order to save their friendship after Samuel does something reckless, the two embark on a trip to Istanbul, eager to start a new life and to enjoy their freedom to the fullest.
This is an impressive film with some incredibly good acting by the young actors who are given language that feels natural and relatable.
Camera work is outstanding in some sequences!
The pacing works well, the characters decisions make sense and the setting both in Germany and in Istanbul is great!
I’m not sure if drug use is really so normal amongst teenagers, it wasn’t when I was a teen.
If you get a chance, watch this coming of age film, you won’t regret it!
