Ich Fühl Mich Disco Dir: Axel Ranisch, Germany, 2013, 95 mins, German with English subtitles

Chubby teenager Florian is very close to his mother. The two enjoy nothing more than dressing up and lip-syncing to disco songs. His diving coach father can’t understand this obsession at all, nor why his son isn’t interested in sports or girls. One day, tragedy strikes Florian’s mother, leaving father and son to cope in each other’s company. But when Florian meets his father’s young Romanian diving student, a tentative adolescent romance begins. At times heartbreaking, at others laugh-out-loud funny, this impressive tragi-comedy is one of the highlights of the festival.
