A little predictable, otherwise a great sad movie
This is a very impressive movie about the life of a teenager, living with his parents and sister in poor circumstances, starting a career in professional boxing. The camera art is beautiful and compelling, especially as it makes use of nicely filmed material during sunset using gyro cams, which is then used to show very ugly industrial zones and social housings!

The main characters (amongst others Daniel Brühl, one of Germany's best young actors) play very convincingly. I liked the set and the props, which seemed very realistic.

The script also had some interesting twists. Nonetheless, the main story is a little predictable.
