Not an accurate portrayal of German society

The vile and demeaning review from Sven B. prompted me to write my first review at IMDb. This is in now way an accurate portrayal of German society and as a German citizen I am quite appalled that the production is apparently almost completely German-based. Talk about shooting yourself in the head :) (Mild spoilers ahead) They have chosen the most stereotypical actors you could imagine playing a 'snitching', self-absorbed female tutor, a male teacher who doesn't know the first thing about respect or empathy as well as an ultra-mean girl, who loves nothing more than to play games with people and not the good ones. She gains a little more character towards the end although it doesn't help much. If you have never been here you can really get the impression from this movie that all Germans are Nazis with a big stick up their ass. And that may be true for ignorant folks in the Sächsische Wald or elsewhere who never met a foreigner or experienced something different beyond the scope of their own village or for people who are simply nihilistic and irredeemable. But I would like to believe and I have seen it often that there are a lot of Germans out there who appreciate the togetherness of different cultures although it's yet far from the melting pot story in the US, which is also not without its problems. So I guess my point is, this movie just shows that the world is full of mean people at every corner but Germany shares this with I guess almost any place in the world by now.

Beautiful coming of age movie - Morris from America!

Just watched Morris from America even though it got a 5.6 on IMDb. I usually try and not watch movies below 6 as i end up getting disappointed, but Morris from America was different. It was surprisingly short and beautiful!

As the title says its about the romantic and coming-of-age misadventures of a 13-year-old African-American boy who moves to Germany with his dad and tries to fit in with the other German kids. He falls for a girl at a youth club and through her own growing up pangs encourages him to open up a little and share his rapping.

We've all had that one childhood crush that we fondly remember - puppy love! The director has beautifully narrated a story that captures the essence of growing up and not fitting in, our first crush and pains with our parents and their side of the story and made a pint size gem! So don't go by the rating and watch it when you have the time and want to remember that feeling of puppy love and not really fitting in!

omg so good

I am beyond baffled at this nonsensical 6 rating. wtf?? This is genius. This is cultures clashing, this is the study of sexism/racism/coming of age/culture is not your friend having it's DAY. this is gorgeous. It's like the realest episode of Skins (UK) ever. honestly just the scene where the kid makes a fake girlfriend and dances with it and humps it is absolutely NECESSARY and so cinematic it reminded me of when I used to make sweet love to my stuffed monkey Gargantua, which is the stuffed animal my grandma gave me before I was even born. This film is truth. This film is straight and gorgeous and it won me over in the first 3 minutes because that is exactly how I would parent. And I'm a 43 year old single, childless white woman. I love this film, this film is everything. Haters can suck it.
