The cinema of German filmmaker Jakob Lass is characterized by an intoxicating energy. His camera and characters are always on the move, involving us in their adventures with such playfulness and unpredictability that we can’t help but be enthralled. I fell for his 2013 romance, “Love Steaks,” when I stumbled upon it on Netflix, and when I heard that Lass would be screening his latest picture, “Tiger Girl,” at the Chicago International Film Festival, I placed it right at the top of my priority list.
Nach seinem preisgekrönten Film Love Steaks, der auf dem Filmfest München 2013 den Förderpreis Neues Deutsches Kino gewann, stellte Jakob Lass auf der diesjährigen Berlinale sein neues Drama Tiger Girl vor.
Tiger Girl erscheint am 05.10.2017 auf DVD und Blu-ray
Our critic said: “With its nervy, caffeinated camerawork; saturated palette of dayglo and neon, stylised violence and the good-girl-gone-bad trajectory, this feels like an adrenalised blend of Celine Sciamma’s Girlhood, Thelma And Louise and just a touch of Tank Girl.”
