Description

Germany, 2015, 87 min. German with English subtitles
Director: Florian Schnell, Screenplay: Jan Cronauer, Florian Schnell, Cast: Moritz Jahn, Mala Emde, Ugur Ekeroglu, David Schütter, Hannes Wegener, Marc Zwinz.

Awkward, withdrawn 17-year-old Jan (Jahn) spends much of his time escaping his tedious teenage existence through video games. Online, he’s Fenris, a formidable level 69 player in the fantasy game “Battle of Utgard.” While preparing for the online tournament “Ragnorök,” Jan is unceremoniously barred from the game. Through some clever sleuthing and with the help of fellow expelled player Karo (Emde), Jan discovers that they have both been hacked by another player, a devious level 70 sorcerer known as Loki (Wegener). As the duo set out on a journey across Germany to find Loki’s human counterpart, Jan must learn to apply his considerable gaming skills to the real world. In his quest to regain his powerful online identity, he comes to appreciate his life as regular, teenage Jan. Florian Schnell’s spirited coming-of-age adventure is especially engaging when exploring the growing friendship between Jan and his feisty female companion, Karo. The script, co-written by Jan Cornauer, takes the unique approach of stressing the value of living in the real world without vilifying the online world the characters love.

This special Matinee is NOT for our smaller kids!!
THIS IS FOR THE TEENS, our many young friends who’ve outgrown the Kinder Matinee.
High school students, German clubs, young German learners and the parents who dare are all welcome.
This Teen Matinee is also an experiment for us: will a format explicitly for juveniles find its audience, and..will anyone be able to get a teenager out of bed on a Sunday morning?!
