Nicht die 80er

von Marleen Valien

Begründung der Jury

Woman and man, there is fish for a date, sparklers and a first kiss. Then the one who has just been kissed tells you that he is HIV positive, and the other person’s head cinema starts.
The “Best Film” of the German-language competition brought us to a topic that seems to have been somewhat forgotten in the discourse – as the SZ writes, HIV has meanwhile lost its horror, but not its stigma. The film itself is light as a feather, humorous, aesthetically sophisticated and brilliantly acted. A little work of art with film grain and a bittersweet 80s flavor.
