Snow White

  The films opens up already if you Nico (Julie Fournier) first seen: With her black hair, bright red lips and pale skin, it actually has something of Snow White in itself. But the name of one can also understand quite differently than in his magical context: Nico in fact draws on the permanent party, which represents her life, a pure line of coke after the other, wanders with her friend Wanda (Zoé Miku) by the hottest clubs the city, indulging in extensive shopping trips and nights around the ears, the skin – welcome to the fun society. But where there is so much joy, the depths are not far away. And lurking in this case Nicos own in the family, where is elsewhere? Nico’s father (Benedict Friday), a successful banker is hardly at home, her mother (Sunnyi Meeting), however, is so out of it, that she had even her own daughter does not recognize. No wonder then, that trying the young woman who has just completed their schooling, no thought for the future wasted but forgotten by all forces and all the (noise) agents.

But when Nico from the simple conditions originating Paco (Carlos Leal gets to know) and love, her life changes abruptly. The singer of the Geneva hip-hop band “Menace Evasion” (in real life, Leal is the front man of hip-hoppers The Sugarcubes) is completely different from them, a genuine rebel who revolted against the Subservience of life, and not small beigibt, as does Nico . Encouraged to start something with their lives, the young woman begins to change her life: it leaves the club’s owner, Boris (Stefan Gubser) focuses more serious ambitions as an actress and can stay away from drugs. But shake off the past – especially since such a move as that of Nico – can not be so easy, and soon the disaster takes its course.

Formally brilliant with quick cuts and camera tricks and some experiments on the golden because creative times reminiscent of the video clips, is lost from the Iraq-derived and in Switzerland living director Samir in the snares of its history and presents his modern Romeo and Juliet story as a mixture of fairy tales, hip advertising and movies telenovela. The cathartic effect of Nicos descent may adapt to, not so right, a deterrent effect than the cliché-laden pieces that have fallen flat lot. But perhaps this story will really only be a fairy tale and therefore has to do with real life little or nothing about? Given the issues presented would be a disastrous position, and certainly for young viewers the wrong signal. The images, however, in parts to make a hell of fun.
