Austrian Dawson's Creek with bisexually-orientated girls - Seventeen review by SC

Spoiler Alert

On the cover it is described as a nice balance between Thirteen and Warm Is The Bluest Colour. Fortunately, it is not at all like either of those two very disappointing films. It is more like the Emma Roberts film Nerve, and Dawson's Creek but with better acting and a far superior script. It concerns a class which contains at least two bisexually-orientated girls, possibly three or four, and a couple of geeky guys (who, for the most part, I thought were the same person) and two macho guys (ditto). The setting is fairly modern, people send texts to each other or gaze at their tablets while making out, and most of the music sounds fairly modern, too - indeed a couple of tracks made me wonder if they were by Para One, who did the music for Water Lilies and Girlhood. Also, there is a scene in Seventeen of the two main girls dancing, which is so similar to a scene in Water Lilies that I had to check whether it was by the same director. However, although Seventeen doesn't deliver and it ends quite abruptly, I'll certainly watch it again. If you like watching films that remind you a bit of the kind of youth you never had, then this one is definitely worth the dosh.
