review by
Mike Haberfelner

Mia (Luna Wedler) is just 15, and her life is shit: She has relocated to a new school during the school year just because her dad had to relocate for work, she has just has her first period, and her mom doesn't seem to understand her anymore - so basically it's a really bad case of puberty, which is bad enough. As a result, she tries to connect with the "bad girls" of school, led by Gianna (Zoe Pastelle Holthuizen), which is bound to get her into trouble. So she has her first experiences with alcohol, sex, drugs, has a lesbian spell, has her emotions thrown into turmoil, loves her parents, hates her parents, and everything inbetween ... thus so far the symptoms of puberty are pretty normal. But she also grows skin between her toes, which horrifies her, later fishlike scales and even fish-like gills - which understandably makes her believe there's more than a little wrong with herself ...

 

Now Blue My Mind just looks amazing, is quite atmospheric, and it's really well-acted throughout, especially given the young age of its leads ... and that said, despite the basic storyline being really worthwhile, it tries too much all at once, thus hammering home its puberty-metaphor a bit too hard. I mean, the metaphor works, but the film seems to sometimes be all over the place, trying to touch a few too many talking points all at once and that way losing a bit of its urgency. Which is not to say this is a bad film by a longshot, it's actually pretty good - just more stringency could have made this a masterpiece!
