Die Perlmutterfarbe

Country: Germany

Genre: Family



Alexander wants so badly to win a painting competition at school so that he can impress Lotte, the girl he fancies. After school, Alexander hangs out with his friends, including not only Lotte, but also his best friend and the class inventor Maulwurf. But when Maulwurf’s latest discovery, The Perlmutterfarbe, unexpectedly lands in Alexander’s hands, his life suddenly spins out of control. While the rest of the class is looking for the thief, Alexander keeps quiet as to the whereabouts of Maulwurf’s invention and tells a little white lie. Gruber, an unpopular boy, knows what Alexander has but covers for Alexander, using the situation to his own advantage. Alexander gets tangled up in a web of lies and distances himself more and more from his friends, while Gruber pits their class up against another class who he claims has The Perlmutterfarbe...

Dividing Bar

Excellent movie adaptation of a famous 1938 German novel. Markus Krojer is much more mature and also more handsome than in "Wer früher stirbt ist länger tot". The movie is funny, but also full of coming of age themes, circling around friendship, trust and the little lies that cause nasty problems. Highly recommended.
