Critic Reviews for Das Schreckliche Mädchen (The Nasty Girl)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

The Nasty Girl is about the power of history and everyone's own brand of personal repression. Yes, it's a universal tale, and at the same time that it enlightens it gives you a chill.

It's the film's style that I object to. The story itself is fascinating, but the style seems to add another tone, a level of irony that is somehow confusing.

Germany's Oscar nominated film is an intriguing but flawed tale of a Bavarian girl who digs into the past and reveals undesirable facts about her town's "respectale" citizens during the Nazi era.
