Tore Tanzt/Nothing Bad Can Happen (2013) – 9/10
This German drama was hard to swallow. It reminded me a bit about Breaking the Waves; very sad and provoking. Beautiful shot, great acting.
“The young Tore seeks in Hamburg a new life among the religious group called The Jesus Freaks. When he by accident meets a family and helps them to repair their car, he believes that a heavenly wonder has helped him. He starts a friendship with the father of the family, Benno. Soon he moves in with them at their garden plot, not knowing what cruelty is there to come. True to his religious belief he stays with them although the increasing violence by Benno is torturing him. Tore is fighting the torment with his own weapons. So a dangerous struggle between libidinous actions and altruism begins. Inspired by true events” (imdb)
