review by
Mike Haberfelner

  • Océan (2013): On summer vacation at the beach with his parents (Julia Faure, Michael Abiteboul) and younger brother (Cyrius Rosset), 10 year old Jean (Adam Lenglen), seeing the drowned body of someone he fleetingly knew (Stéphane Blancafort) is faced with mortality the first time ...
  • Go Daan Go!/Daan Durft (2014): When 9 year old Daan (Jorrit de Jong) discovers he's really good at swimming and enjoys it a lot, too, he wants to join a swimming club to take it to the next level - but his mother (Marleen Scholten), a former worldcup swimmer who had to give up swimming due to a heart problem, is dead-set against it ...
  • The Boy in the Ocean (2016): Every year, Mathias (Mika Seidel) spends his sommer vacation with his parents (Andreas Nickl, Barbara Philipp) on their boat fishing somewhere in the North Sea - but he's 12 now, has his sexual awakening, and falls in love with an older Danish girl (Fie London), who hardly acknowledges his existence. And he's still young enough to haven't the faintest idea how to handle his feelings ...
  • Beach Boy (2011): On a camping trip to the sea with his older brother Steffen (Timo Jacobs), teenaged Dimi (Tom Gramenz) falls madly in love with Isabelle (Lore Richter), who turns out to be Steffen's girlfriend - and this can only lead to chaos, especially since Dimi hasn't learned how to deal with such emotions yet ...

Always make sure of DVD-compatibility!!!

A pan-European collection of aquatically-themed coming-of-age shorts, this movie, despite its segments varying in approach and also in subtlety, comes into its own thanks to the wide array of topics - from sexual awakening to trying to come to terms with one's own mortality - it covers in a generally unexcited way that avoids spectacle, with the shorts all being grounded and relatable, yet treating universal themes in a very individual manner, and more like a slice-of-life than message movie. And while not all the segments hit home with equal accuracy, each does make at least some points to muse about and has at least something for every viewer to take away.
