Transmite esa vorágine de descubrimiento y plenitud, donde se produce un laberinto de emociones complejas. Expone la vida de dos jóvenes con un trasfondo familiar duro, pero de una forma elegante y visceral, sin caer en dramatismos. Lo único que podría mejorar sería el desarrollo de la relación sentimental principal. El final es poderoso e importante. El estilo visual es muy moderno, combinado con una personalidad poética, que crea un...
Fourteen-year-old Nora (Lena Urzendowsky) drifts in the slipstream of her cooler, older sister Jule (Lena Klenke). With their mother wedded to alcohol and largely absent from the lives of her two children, the girls are each other’s support system. But over the course of the languid, super-heated summer of 2018, Nora begins to realise that she can’t shape herself into her sister’s image. Her route to adulthood is her own...
Nem só de filme cabeça metafísico tiro porrada e sangue vive a Mostra de São Paulo. Casulo é a comédia romântica lésbica alemã pra abraçar nossos corações e dar um respiro de tanta mudernidadji cinemtaográfica. Não que Casulo não seja moderninho, é sim. Mas é um filme despretensioso sobre 2 irmãs adolescentes alemãs que sem muita ajuda da mãe que só quer passar a noite em boteco bebendo, vão descobrindo...
This is nothing to do with Ron Howard’s movie about Don Ameche being rejuvenated by aliens. German director Leonie Krippendorff has created a coming-of-age awakening in the 2018 summer of love, with swimming-pool rapture, yearning bedroom reveries and rooftop party scenes in the Kotti Kreuzberg, Berlin’s Kottbusser Tor district. There are also some noodling YA-style video-journaling inserts, which are an acquired taste. It’s a bit derivative and the metaphor in...
From the beginning, Cocoon is simultaneously insular and far-reaching in its imagining of the many metamorphoses of a young woman, depicting teenage sexual desire and life in the city during one scorching summer in Berlin. Leonie Krippendorff’s feature fixates on the singular experiences of its protagonist, the 14-year-old Nora (Lena Urzendowsky). Through a mix of intimate close shots, smartphone camera footage and over-the-shoulder angles, the film meanders through the everyday...
Leonie Krippendorff’s 2020 film Cocoon is a masterclass in compassionate filmmaking. Set in contemporary East Berlin, in the multi-cultural Kreuzberg, the film follows 13-year-old Nora (Lena Urzendowsky) as she navigates a long, hot summer of firsts. She is flanked by her older sister Jule (Lena Klenke), and Jule’s pack of vivacious friends who switch between jocular camaraderie and casual cruelty. Her attention is snagged by the new girl in class...
An authentic, queer coming-of-age story takes place in the summer streets of Berlin in the award-winning, Cocoon: writer and director Leonie Krippendorff’s second full-length feature. Following a young 14-year-old girl’s metamorphosis as she experiences quintessential Berlin teen life, the film is a tender comment on sexuality, womanhood and growing up in general. The drama, with its strong performances and artistic shots, creates a warm yet slow-burn viewing experience and positions...
Set during a Berlin summer (an extremely hot one), Leonie Krippendorf’s debut feature, Cocoon, follows 14-year-old Nora (Lena Urzendowsky), whose sheepishness and reluctance to step forward into adulthood are embraced by the all-encompassing glow of the film’s warm cinematography. Nora tags along in the shadow of her outspoken, flirtatious, 16-year-old sister, Jule (Lena Klenke), along with Jule’s best friend, Aylin (Elina Vildanova), as they spend their time basking in the...
With a blast of youthful energy, this German drama explores the lives of young women through the eyes of a girl who's just discovering she doesn't want to go with the flow. Filmmaker Leonie Krippendorff makes vivid use of this perspective, seeing first love as something both confusing and exhilarating. The emotions are right on the surface, which gives the film a strong resonance even if it sometimes feels simplistic.
There’s no Instagram filter to make teenage life prettier, particularly if you’re a shy fourteen year old girl. Leonie Krippendorff’s second feature film Cocoon explores just that. It’s as raw as a skinned knee: truthful, poignant and beautiful. Nora (a superb, understated Lena Urzendowsky) is going through typical teen shit. She’s a late developer, getting her first period in front of the whole school, at a time when she longs...
This German film follows Nora (Lena Urzendowsky) a young teen during the record hot summer of 2018. Nora spends most of her time with her older sister Jule (Lena Klenke) going to the pool and hanging out with Jule’s friends. While Jule does not love having her younger sister hanging out with her and her friends, as it leads to some embarrassing moments from time to time, we soon learn...
Cocoon (Kokon) is a triumph on the brink of womanhood: a searing portrait of young queerness centred around the lesbian awakening of fourteen-year-old Nora (Jena Urzendowaky). In the sizzling heat of Berlin’s 2018 summer, Nora has many firsts: menstruation, masturbation and smoking marijuana. Yet the core self-discovery of Nora’s sexuality is that which Cocoon centres. Her summer consists of days in the company of her older sister Jule (Lena Klenke),...
The coming-of-age genre will have as many variations as there are growing pains. Leonie Krippendorf’s Berlin-set drama takes the messiness and mistakes inherent in such films —and times of life— and captures both their magic and their unfiltered nastiness. Cocoon follows Nora (Lena Urzendowsky), a shy fourteen-year-old growing up in Berlin’s Kottbusser Tor neighbourhood. She starts her summer raising caterpillars by herself in her small room and quietly tagging along...
