Slidin' is really 'Kids' in Austria, a cliched portrait of young Austrian teenagers who do drugs, have sex, dance in discos and walk around looking beautiful. Divided into three parts, each is really less original than the next.
It is not that it is painful to watch, by no means. It is at times quite entertaining, especially the third part which focuses on a bunch of students getting stuck on their way to the disco. But the film offers the viewer little, somehow I had a hard time believing that the teenagers had had such rough lives, considering that they all looked like they came from a perfectly good family. The struggles which they face are minor and outbursts come from nowhere.
More glamorous than 'Kids' which seemed somewhat more raw than this piece. Uninspired filmmaking which seemed to hope controversy would erupt in making it, but it has all been done before, and it is not shocking to watch the kids do what they are doing.
