Review: 31 year-old Tristan remembers the time when he was 15 and had just hit puberty. But he is not alone in this, he is with a large group of friends: Specki, a fat kid who is always stuffing himself, Streusel, a cheeky boy covered with spots, Tümai, a pretty Turkish girl, Kerstin, best friend of Tümai and very sporty, Elrond, with a heavy stutter, but regardless extremely popular and good looking, Lars and Simone, so far the only couple in the class who spend most of their time smooching and Long Jana, a girl who is at least 6 foot tall and extremely skinny. Tristan has just developed a huge crush on Kerstin, but is too shy to do anything about it. As if that weren't enough, his parents, both psychoanalysts, separate - which puts an abrupt end to childhood naivety. Tristan is supposed to move town at the end of the school year. But time is too short to grow grey hair. The friends experience awkwardness at dance school, masturbation and first fantasies of the opposite sex, amateur school theatre, the first "real" party with lots of alcohol, strip poker etc. The biggest interest is of course to get ahead with the girls which often ends up in very funny situations. Their mutual enemy is Simone's father who beats her until Tristan finally takes up the courage to stop him. On Tristan's last day, when all his friends come to say goodbye, Kerstin is missing. To his surprise she waits on the swing in front of Tristan's new home. This is the beginning of a long, deep love, which leaves Tristan with the knowledge that he experienced something extraordinary, which most people never will. - D&D Film- und Fernsehproduktion GmbH, IMDb

Review: Mid-90s in Kazakhstan, a time of a deep economical crisis… Zharas carries bags of flour to feed his family. His father just got out of prison and can’t find a job, so he’s on his own to allow his family to survive. Chick has a wonderful voice and prepares to take part in a singing contest. But someday, new friends appear in his life. Toad is hanging out in the ruins and sewers of his village, looking for metal scraps he could resell. One day he encounters three deranged young boys, the Gluesniffers, who show him a hidden treasure in an abandoned plant. Aslan is a brilliant student who gets ready to enter a medical college in the city, but finds out that his girlfriend got pregnant unexpectedly. Realizing the hopelessness of the conditions in the village, he decides to assist her to have an abortion... Four moral tales, four destinies of teenagers who will burn their wings to find a place and survive in a poor village of Kazakhstan : Balapan, a victim of bullying who doesn’t want to fight; Zharas, whose father is a thief and has to feed his family; Zhaba, who searches for some metal scraps and lusts after a secret treasure guarded by a group of deranged kids; and Aslan, who fears that his medic studies will be compromised by his girlfriend getting pregnant. The Wounded Angel is the second opus of an eponymous triptych on teenagers about the complex, at times irrational and inadequate relationships that young children becoming adults have with the world. It is the second long feature by Emir Baigazin, the Kazakh director revealed during Berlinale 2013, when it was awarded the Silver Bear.

Review: "Bania" is an exploration Russian society through its bath-houses in the city, the countryside, in a monastery, a factory or a prison. The film plays with the boundaries between personal and scocial space in scenes where naked bodies, marked by tattoos, suffering, labour or war, tell a tale. This film was made by a photographer who, confronted by these naked bodies bathed in steam, invents an unique and timeless plastic world, in the style of classical painting.
