Storyline

Anyone can hold a mini-DV camera. Anyone can get 99 euros in credit. And everyone has already written a five-minute story in school.

And all that in 80 minutes. 12 young German filmmakers come together, inspire exciting young actors and go: have an idea and simply film it. Just do it and be independent. Written by Anonymous

awesome mosaic of current German film-making
6 August 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Twelve young German film directors get 99 Euro to shoot a film: shoot in the smallest possible constellation. Returning to the original idea, film should be about stories and emotions rather than expensive effects and marketing strategies. This is how 99EURO-FILMS criticize current mainstream films, which have moved far away from that notion. The twelve episodes by directors like RP Kahl, Michael Klier, Matthias Glasner, Martin Walz, and Esther Gronenborn, together build an awesome, diversifying mosaic of current German film- making, which is loaded with ideas and interesting aesthetics, in this case mini-dv-aesthetics in contrast to high definition standards. The ideas are fresh, unconventional, open-minded and individual – as far as content is concerned as well as style. It is especially interesting to see the well-known actors Nicolette Krebitz and Peter Lohmeyer as first time directors with their own episodes. Every viewer will be rewarded in this compilation: some episodes are easy-going and comedic, others are more contemplative and artistic – all of them are very filmic.
