Boys Are Us

73 minutes 2012

In this Swiss teen drama, two sisters decide to take revenge on boys after the younger one gets her heart broken; they decide she'll seduce the first naive guy she finds on an online dating service, then dump him as soon as he falls in love. There's a great film to be made about the impact of online communication on how young people think about sexual relationships and power dynamics in general. Writer-director Peter Luisi offers some insights, particularly in his characterization of the callous older sister, but his flashy narrative conceits?such as having three different actors play the sisters' mark?prove more distracting than illuminating. In German with subtitles.
