Review

Simona Kostova’s debut film Thirty portrays the lives of six youths struggling with the everyday life in Berlin and the reality of turning thirty. The film follows the group who spend time in Neukolln, a blue-collar district in Berlin for 24 hours. A Friday in October, it is Ovunc’s birthday. There are former lovers Pascal and Raha who are now friends and Henner who hangs out at a bar all day long and comes across Anja. They get along to celebrate Ovunc’s 30th birthday. After the sweet party ends Ovunc and his friends wander around the streets of Berlin. Though you can get a glimpse of Berlin, the purpose of this film is actually not to experience the nightlife of Berlin. The relationship of these characters seems intimate but has an invisible crack. The nauseous handheld images and the rough looking night scenes are intertwined effectively. The rapidly changing camera responding to the changes in the drama seems like a revival of Dogma films.
