It's a curious thing that movies dipping into the unpleasant world of the neo-Nazi or skinhead movements are almost always told from the male perspective. There are some fairly obvious reasons for that, of course, but there's more of the story to tell and Germany's David Wnendt is doing just that with Combat Girls
Marisa, a 20-year-old German girl, hates foreigners, Jews, cops, and
everyone she finds guilty for the decline of her country. She
provocates, drinks, fights and her next tattoo
will be a portrait of Adolf Hitler. The only place she feels home is
the Neo-Nazi gang she belongs to, where hate, violence, and heavy
parties are the daily rules. When 14-year-old
Svenja joins the group, Marisa appears like a role model to her: she
fits the purest idea of a combat girl fighting for the group's
But Marisa's convictions will slowly evolve when she accidentally meets
a young Afghan refugee. Confronted to him, she will learn that the
black and white principles of her gang are not the only way. Will
Marisa ever be able to get out of this group?
An English subtitled trailer for this one has arrived and it looks like powerful stuff. Take a look below.
