Things I don’t get
GER 2018, 71 min
In a small German town near the edge of the Ruhr region, a farmboy tries to find his place in the world. Torn back and forth between city and country-side, between best friend and older brother, between the present and tradition, Johannes longs for acknowledgement and adventure.
The 15-year-old farmer prefers to skip class and go around downtown rather than spend his time at school. His father and his older brother neglect him and he spends most of his time with his friend Marika. As their friendship gradually turns into love, Johannes does not know where he belongs anymore. He goes hunting with his father and other people, he starts going out with his brother at night and he distances himself from Marike, who turns away from him in disappointment. He trries to get away from it all – but he can't get away from himself.
