"Mein Stern" by Valeska Grisebach
This Austrian film, shot in German, won the Special Award at FIPRESCI and the Best Film Award in Turin.

"Mein Stern" is about the life of modern teenagers in Berlin. Modern life in modern society always includes sex. Sex on the television, sex everywhere, sex among teenagers....

She's only 14, yet she notices next door boy. Longing to enter the world of grown ups, she sleeps with him, thinking that their love will last forever. Well, it seems that some things don't change...

We all have been teenagers, we all know about first love and about first sex.
This is a teenage drama made for grown ups, not for teenagers, with the teenagers shown in a typical and urban realistic way. Sometimes, if it seems the actors do not act, it?s because the actors in this film are real teenagers.
