| German Teenage Angst
I watched this on the off chance that it would be a sleazy German comedy!/horror, detailing the deprivations of a frozen phallic popsicle. which probably says it all for my expectations of German cinema!

what I actually got with 'Lollipop Monster', however, was a kind of coming of age flick about two teenage girls coming to terms with big death and sexuality issues. and I must admit it was pretty well done on the whole, especially when dealing with Ari's 'going goth', a really fun scene involving a terrible German pop video (one of several - I don't know if this is typical German pop but I kind of hope so) which is playing on Ari's TV whilst she paints her bedroom jet black with a roller.

unlike more typical German fayre, this doesn't overdo things in the explicit sex and violence stakes, but gets it's points across pretty well anyhow.

I did find the use of animation and 'experimental' shots pretty annoying pretty rapidly, though.

overall? suck it and see.
