Storyline

With the birthday party of the most beautiful girl in the class coming in less than three weeks, the diffident fourteen-year-old teenager, Maik, has a lot on his mind. To further complicate matters, Maik's alcohol-dependent tennis enthusiast mother is in and out of the beauty farm--aka the rehab facility--and his real estate developer father is utterly indifferent. Under those circumstances, the unexpected arrival of the exciting new classmate, Tschick, will create quite a stir, when the class' rejects boldly decide to hit the road in an old "borrowed" light-blue Lada, going from uncool to cool in a split second. Little by little--as Tschick and Maik set off on an unforgettable joyride in East Germany's great outdoors--they will find out the meaning of friendship, and the thrill of the first love. This is going to be, hands down, the best summer ever. Written by Nick Riganas

Tschick: No, just borrowed it. I'll put it back later. Lada Niva, runs on diesel.
Maik Klingenberg: What about fingerprints?
Tschick: That's TV bullshit. Go ahead, touch anything.
Maik Klingenberg: You want to go to jail?
Tschick: I'm only 14, man. Criminal accountability starts at 15. Come on, Maik, let's go for a spin!

Enjoy the ride
6 March 2017 | by mineshaft-gapSee all my reviews

German road movie about two teenage boys going on German roads during summer vacations. It is a simple movie but very well executed and with a great cast. It makes you want to become young and fearless again, nostalgia, nostalgia, always a powerful sentiment. In background it tackles important topics including dysfunctional families and races.
