| Too arid and slow - even for a German film
True, that Germans do not resemble the nations residing around the Mediterranean and so one can not expect very romantic or sharp motions, but still, Pingpong is a rather dull narration of 2 different generations within a small environment, with scenes and solutions partially predictable, partially odd or factitious. Luckily, the cast is decent=good, particularly the 2 leading ones, but long silent scenes and recurring motives do not make this film interesting throughout its duration - what is less than 1.5 hours.

Thus, a mediocre film to me, not at the level of related German films about troubled youth and intergenerational relationships. There was some dramatics and world-weariness, but limited locality did not allow to bring it forth in full.
