Plot

Cyril falls head over heel for the new girl in his class. Roxy is drop dead gorgeous and she is cool. But there is a problem. Cyril is terribly self conscious because he's got a rather large nose. And while he writes songs for and about his beloved, he is too shy to let her know they are his and pretends they were written by the hunky Rick whom he presumes Roxy must admire. And if he has not chances with the lovely, he'd rather she go out with dim witted Rick than with that macho Benno.

Comment

A giant surprise! I never would've thought this would work for me this much, but it totally does. Sure, there are a few flaws and it is too simplistic at times, but all in all it is so adorable and hits the right notes.

Also, all of the performances are pretty great at most of the time, and the pacing is just right. It also is fairly surprising at moments and absolutely well written and hilarious, even heartbreaking as well. If you like coming-of-age flicks, I think this is for you.

This movie even got me a bit teary-eyed, I'll admit it. One of the best German films of recent memory, which isn't hard I know, but please do give it a shot. It's kinda lovely.

Trivia

Modern adaption of Cyrano de Bergerac.
