Es war einmal Indianerland

Once Upon a Time in Indian CountryEs war einmal Indianerland / Es war einmal Indianerland

Filmforum, Germany 2017, 97 Min., germ. OV, engl. st, 12 years and older

Imagine you’re 17 and you live in the highrises on the outskirts of Hamburg. The air shimmers – it’s summer. Then there’s the night Jackie turned your head. At the pool, with her foxy ginger hair. Imagine how the sparks fly from your fingers with joy. Then BAM. The world goes topsy-turvy. Zöllner strangles his wife. Edda, the 21-year-old from the video store, starts pestering you. You get into the ring with Kondor. And you keep on thinking you see this Indian. Then, at showdown time, there’s a near-Biblical storm. Is this what it’s like – the adventure of being young? Ilker Çatak’s feature debut is based on the eponymous and award-winning novel by Nils Mohl. A wild and wonderful genre mixture of boxing film, urban western, road movie, and music video.
