Editorial Reviews

In this startling, darkly funny coming-of-age drama, a disaffected teenager embarks on a life of his own brand of crime. The handsome Armin (Constantin von Jascheroff) is fresh out of college and unemployed. Unable to take the pressure from his parents, he sends an anonymous confession to the local newspaper after he sees a charred car wreck by the highway. He quickly spins into further acts of rebellion, like writing pornographic graffiti on a bathroom wall and fantasizing about committing violent crimes and having forced sex with a gang of leather-clad motorcyclists. But is it really all fantasy and lies, or is there a danger lurking below Armin's innocent surface?

This movie is a bit slow paced, but that reflects the mood of the main character who is a suburban boy, unmotivated, disaffected, alienated, and isolated. To fill the void in his life, he frequents a road side bathroom, and has sex with anonymous men. He is looking for a job, but while he would like the money, he really doesn't want to do any of them. However, his clueless parents are so wrapped up in what they think he is and what they want him to be, they fail to see the talents he actually has. Even he fails to see his own talents.

Again, slow moody pace to reflect the mood of the main character. Also, think of this as slice of life, we simply travel with this boy through his life as he has bathroom sex, confesses to crimes he didn't commit, and bows to his parent pressure to look for a job that he doesn't really want. I think, just to fill the emptiness in his life, you may feel otherwise. Slow paced, but sufficient to keep me interested. Since I rented it for 7 day, I watched it twice. An interesting character study.

'Falscher Bekenner' ('I Am Guilty') is a strange little film that seems to beg our indulgence in looking at and pondering the state of mind of our newly graduated college youths who have had everything provided for them to prepare for life - and are clueless as to how to begin fitting into the world. Writer and director Christoph Hochhäusler appears to have a rather bleak look at this generation - or is it the generation that produced the 'new adults' that he is questioning?

Armin Steeb (Constantin von Jascheroff) is a good-looking young fresh college graduate living with his doting parents (Manfred Zapatka and Victoria Trauttmansdorff) who are concerned about Armin's inertia about supporting himself. They assist him in applying for jobs, prepare him for job interviews, and obviously love him and wish for his happiness. Armin is bored: he can barely tolerate the entire family's normalcy, longing for something to light a fire in his life. While walking alone one night he encounters a wrecked automobile containing a dead driver and while he stops to inspect, he soon moves on carrying with him a metal object from the site of the accident. Out of boredom he writes to the police that he is responsible for the accident of what happens to have been the demise of a public official. He takes the found metal object to the police station then leaves without identifying himself.

Armin continues fruitless job interviews but also spends time in front of the glow of his computer monitor having fantasies: we see him defiling public roadside restrooms with graffiti, having bizarre physical liaisons with motorcycle men, and hurtful encounters with love interest contenders. Are these real or are they the products of an unfocused mind that wants more to life than the humdrum day job?

A portrait of young adult depression & ennui that does less to enlighten and more to replicate the affliction of the lead character in the viewer. Watch it with large bottle of Prozac handy.

This really sucked. I did not realize it was in German. I thought it was about bad boy bikers (which turned out to be kids on scooters, and a youn wimpy boy dreaming about them.
