Storyline

Ari and Oona. Two 15-year-old girls, two dysfunctional families. Absolute opposites and yet somehow similar. No one listens, no one hears. Ari feels she is misunderstood and compensates for this by having sex with unknown men; Oona expresses the pain over her beloved father's suicide through self-mutilation and morbid drawings. Opposites attract. Ari is a blonde who paints herself up like a canary, Oona loves things as black as night. Their unlikely friendship helps them survive the hypocrisy of their families. Ari finally gains some kind of self-respect, and Oona learns to give vent to her pain. Then something happens that threatens their friendship at its very roots.... The scope of the debuting director's creative interests is evident both in the mix of cinematic devices that enrich the narration (animated passages, amateur film recordings, music videos), as well as in the artistic stylization, which directly references her grounding in comics.

German Teenage Angst
5 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this on the off chance that it would be a sleazy German comedy!/horror, detailing the deprivations of a frozen phallic popsicle. which probably says it all for my expectations of German cinema!

what I actually got with 'Lollipop Monster', however, was a kind of coming of age flick about two teenage girls coming to terms with big death and sexuality issues. and I must admit it was pretty well done on the whole, especially when dealing with Ari's 'going goth', a really fun scene involving a terrible German pop video (one of several - I don't know if this is typical German pop but I kind of hope so) which is playing on Ari's TV whilst she paints her bedroom jet black with a roller.

unlike more typical German fayre, this doesn't overdo things in the explicit sex and violence stakes, but gets it's points across pretty well anyhow.

I did find the use of animation and 'experimental' shots pretty annoying pretty rapidly, though.

overall? suck it and see.
