Herz Im Kopf 2001
1h 30min | Drama, Romance | 6 June 2002 (Germany)
akob, an 18-year-old boy, comes back to Frankfurt after he left after his mothers death one year ago. While trying to sort his life he meets a Polish Au-Pair, Wanda, and falls in love with her. But there are several disappointments on both sides…
“Herz im Kopf”, a film probably made for teenagers, must be considered as well done not only for this group. Jakob, trying to find his place in the world after his mothers death, is both true to life and well acted. When watching his attempts to get a job, to arrange his life with his older (and pregnant) sister and of course to get the girl he loves, you are touched not only as a teenager, but as a human, because the feelings transported in the picture are universal. Wanda, a Polish Au-Pair in Germany and object of Jakob’s love, is very well acted too. But the biggest congratulations have to go to the screenplay which expresses very true feelings, with several Ups and Downs.
After all a really good movie, not the best this year, but very worth watching!
