    Tiger Girl

    ★★★½

    Another great entry to the wave of German independent cinema. Sharp direction from Jakob Lass, beautiful cinematography, interesting characters and perfectly-coreographed action scenes. At a running time of only 90 minutes, Tiger Girl is perfectly paced and offers no time to rest.

Not only is La La Land an ode to all the dreamers, the crazy ones and the fools, it is also a love letter to cinema itself. A love letter, that only can be…
