If you're looking for a well-done documentary about an extremely typical teenage girl, this is for you. The film attempts to make this girl's life a lot more interesting than it really is, with minimal success. I didn't really enjoy it. But I didn't really hate it, either. The whole film made me facepalm over and over again about this girl's decisions. Perhaps being farther removed from Kati's age (her and I graduated in the same year) I could look at the film in a more nostalgic way, instead, I just see the type of girl I didn't really like in high school-- the one who spent all of her time thinking about her boyfriend.
Many of the reviews about this film rave over the cinematography and music, which are both really quite great. This is the perfect film to study how cinema verité should be executed, that is, only if you can get past the subject matter.
