Storyline

The documentary "Drachenmädchen" (Dragon Girls) tells the story of three Chinese girls, training to become Kung Fu fighters, far away from their families at the Shaolin Tagou Kung Fu School, located right next to the Shaolin Monastery in China, place of origin of Kung Fu. Three girls in a crowd of 27.000 children, under pressure to conform to the norms and structures: They are turned into fighting robots and yet, if you look behind the curtain, you see children with dreams and aspirations.

Impressive reality
23 September 2014 | by erichkoffSee all my reviews

Very very very impressive. I actually started to watch the film not from the beginning. While i was stressed by the amount of work, training, training, hard staff, hard conditions, and bright little girls, but then i've seen Shao Lin on their jackets. Everething became so clear.

You have not even a slice of idea how much hard work and how many training, how many overcoming and yet clear minds is there. Looking at 26 000 motivated all-day-training children to become best fighters in the world European and American mind would definitely obtain the new perspective on what hard work and true competition is.

Recommend to watch - if you don't like it - just turn it off in 30 minutes.
