TIGER GIRL
2017, 90 min, Germany, Dir: Jakob Lass

Twenty-something pushover Maggie (Maria Dragus) is desperate to fit in. After failing the Berlin police entrance exams, she settles for training as a security guard, but her passivity constantly lands her in risky situations. Enter Tiger (Ella Rumpf), an assertive, street-smart young woman who gets what she wants - occasionally by violence - and takes Maggie under her wing. Hitting the streets of Berlin in borrowed security uniforms, the unlikely duo aims to correct minor social injustices, but the increasingly self-confident Maggie ultimately takes things a bit too far. Following his own FOGMA manifesto, director Lass’ third feature skillfully blends mostly improvised dialogue with documentary-style camerawork to bring the powerful, action-packed visuals and stylized fight scenes to life in this intelligently edgy “Martial Arthouse” film.
