Du schaust: Kinofilm 25 km/h


It’s no mystery audiences and filmmakers alike love buddy comedies, despite most of my mitarbeiter favourites schutz been around for well over a decade (the rebooted Jump straße series and anything simon Pegg and Nick Frost collaborate ~ above notwithstanding). 25 KM/H, ns latest effort from German director markus Goller, zu sein the many recent film to nur how much fun merely watching two actors fuck about through assorted scenarios tun können be. Boasting a perfect pair von leads, a really literal interpretation von the native bromance, und a script that knows exactly how to balance its feeling detours with in emotional story, it’s a real masterclass in getting this genre appropriate while making that look easy.
Brothers christian (Lars Eidinger) und Georg (Bjarne Mädel) were inseparable throughout their youth an a sleepy town an Germany’s black Forest region, yet progressively drifted apart together their dreams and career prospects formed: christen has travelled ns world and is jetzt a effective executive, georg stayed at home to look after your aging parents. Having actually been rejoined after 30 years über a death bei the family, ns duo spontaneously agree zu take a road expedition they zuerst planned as teenagers using ns same crappy mopeds castle bought all those year ago. One von 25 KM/H’s biggest successes zu sein how it provides a usually premise to play on the obvious archetypes each character could fall into - for instance - georg being ‘the responsible und uptight one’, or christen being effortlessly suave. über contrast, the film quickly settles on the viel more realistic concept that siblings, especially those brought hoch side über side, more than likely aren’t that different. Both men can be raucous or considerate even when ns other isn’t around; their estrangement certainly führen zu to lock having different priorities, but i could imagine every behaving ns same way if their roles had actually been reversed. An fact, the film emphasises this through a plethora of moments where die brothers arbeiten as a team, from some shockingly great tap dancing, zu literally eating everything on the menu hinweisen a Greek restaurant as von their younger selves’ rules zum the trip (likely kommen sie be die most absurdly funny film scene ich watch this year).

25 KM/H would certainly be i do not have anything near zu sein entertaining as it without together brilliant performances native Eidinger und Mädel, who not only show an inherent grasp von their particular characters, but chemistry which need to be ns envy of on-screen duos everywhere. This zu sein epitomised early in the film as ns brothers grieve in their childhood residence after ns opening funeral sequence: Mädel nails Georg’s bottled-up anger and disappointment at christen for being so late to ns service, yet die latter’s thin delight and nostalgia upon gift surrounded über old memories breaks down die walls between them, naturally leading zu a hilarious montage of drunken table tennis.​My just slight criticism of the film overall ist its occasional end reliance ~ above montages, despite this ist surely die result von Goller having bei abundance des footage to choose from, bei understandable dilemma when her leads do such a good team. However, this does thankfully permit 25 KM/H zu spend the second hilfreich developing an emotional side, v Georg and Christian’s resurfacing bond as fine as some surprising revelations around their respective pasts. Once again, the script succeeds by presenting a relatable point des view, this time the reinserting yourself right into someone’s life sound nice but zu sein much harder zu achieve in practice. While ns poignancy des this idea never eclipses die film’s comedic moment (nor have to it), its stable build-up and cheerful conclusion do it bei easy fit and welcome addition to the long list von things simply done best here.25 KM/H ist the rare film that gets to schutz its cake und eat it too, prospering both an its more comprehensive comedy and touching reflect on family. Die road pilgrimage concept so provides a stunning showcase weil das the German countryside, in fact, aside from Eidinger und Mädel die MVP is probably cinematographer offen Griebe. Overall, this seemed like a reliable crowd-pleaser going in yet still managed zu impress und surprise me with just how great it is.​
