Axolotl Overkill

Germany, German, 94 mins

  • Director: Helene Hegemann
  • Writer: Helene Hegemann
  • Producer: Cornelia Ackers; Cornelius Conrad

CGiii Comment

In 2010, Helene Hegemann’s Axolotl Roadkill became a controversial hit novel in Germany. This year, she follows up with an impressive and visually striking film adaptation.

Axolotol Overkill centres on Mifti, a 16-year-old girl who is pushing the limits with everyone around her. Her mother is dead and her father comes in and out of her life. Seeming to have no interest in people her own age, Mifti surrounds herself with dubious adults, among them Ophelia, her new best friend and unstable party girl/actress, and the elusive criminal and older woman she sleeps with.

Outlandish, dark and original, Axolotl Overkill focuses on one young woman’s search for love, and all of the wrong people she finds along the way.
