Being 17 Esteros Screwed Comedy Drama Romance. Nach Rollen in und spielte er die Titelrolle in , für die er mit dem New Faces Award Sonderpreis ausgezeichnet wurde.
Das Buch ist 20 Jahre alt und hilft Jugendlichen noch heute! Louis: Ich habe es erst gelesen als klar war, dass ich die Hauptrolle in der Verfilmung spielen würde.
Auch für diese Rolle gewann er mehrere Filmpreise. I've read the book some years ago. Wir haben völlig alltägliche Sachen gemacht, haben gemeinsam gegrillt, sind schwimmen gegangen, haben über uns, über Gefühle und natürlich auch über Sex gesprochen, um alles abzuschütteln, was Ballast ist und uns voneinander trennt.
Das Drehbuch würde sich eigentlich nicht ändern, wenn Nicholas eine Nicole wäre. Erfahren Sie wenigstens, wie die Zuschauerzahlen aussehen?
Wie leicht lässt man die Hüllen fallen vor der Kamera? Und tatsächlich ist es ja fast zweitrangig, dass es hier um zwei Jungs geht.
Ich wollte es ihnen so leicht wie möglich machen und sie wussten, dass ich es so authentisch wie möglich haben möchte.
Hofmann zog nach dem nach , wo er in einer in lebt. Damals war ich gerade im Urlaub, auf einem Segelboot, und habe das Buch verschlungen.
Er ist ja viel mehr als nur schwul. Es geht — und daran kann sich jeder finden — um Liebe, Freundschaft und Familie. Man muss einfach nur die Türen in sich finden und öffnen.
Ich habe ihn ein paar Jahre nach Erscheinen gelesen. Erste internationale Erfahrung sammelte Louis Hofmann beim Dreh der ebenfalls erschienenen dänisch-deutschen Koproduktion des Regisseurs.

Actually i think Wolf was somehow in love with Phil. I mean it was never said but the scene when Phil kissed Thomas and Wolf saw everything and touched Phils cheek in such a gentle way Okay guys, Wolf was definitely nuts but even crazy people can have feelings.
Oh and the fact that Wolf hurt Nicholas who was so close to Phil I think Wolf did it because he didnt want Phil to have such eyes for anyone else Hm anyway.
At that point i was pretty pleased with the plot again Only Kat!!! And since Phil is such a disgusting nice guy i was afraid that he would forgive her because of their 12 years of friendship or something but i am happy he didnt.
Well, they never talked about it since Phil pretended he didnt know in front of her but Kat wouldnt ever have a chance to apologize or explain it to him or something since Phil made the right decision to leave that place with his uncle Gable.
Of course Phil said himself that he is gonna come back, since this was his home but even then i am sure he wouldnt forgive Kat for what she did.
With his going away without telling her at all, he officially ended their friendship and that was definitely a good choice. All in all, the book was really nice and realistic.
Actually what Nicholas and Kat did is the worst thing i could ever imagine happening to me so seeing that there is a way to get over it made me feel kinda happy.
There were many ups and downs in this book but i still liked it a lot. I am pretty sure that i will never ever touch this book again since it made me wanna burn it at some point but when I closed it i did it was a smile.
View 1 comment. This is one of those books that was so different from the movie but at the same time, it was as excellent as the movie itself.
I could see all the creative licenses taken in the movie and was glad for the superb casting because otherwise, the movie would have been simply average.
Th This is one of those books that was so different from the movie but at the same time, it was as excellent as the movie itself.
There is humor, there is heartache, laughter and tears, and above all, the author manages to write about deeply serious human situations without losing the innocence of a child, always open to new ideas and with the courage to face new things.
Wonderful book If you never had a chance to dive into a story of surreal family structures - here you go Andreas Steinhöfel's The Center of the World tells the story of seventeen-year-old Phil, who lives with his twin sister, Dianne, and mother, Glass, in an old castle in a small German town.
The father he has never met and knows little to nothing about remains in America. Glass' promiscuous sexual behavior makes the children targets of the neighborhood bullies' taunts and jeers and relegates them to the rol If you never had a chance to dive into a story of surreal family structures - here you go Glass' promiscuous sexual behavior makes the children targets of the neighborhood bullies' taunts and jeers and relegates them to the role of outsiders in the community.
Phil is befriended by Kat, the daughter of the school headmaster, who is willful, proud, and possessive. When Phil falls in love with the new boy, Nicholas, Kat supports the relationship but soon finds herself falling for Nicholas' charms, too.
In order to nurse and ultimately heal the wounds that result from the love triangle, Phil must decide what is most important to him, accept his own self-worth, and become a more active participant in his life.
This novel is rich and multi-layered with several interwoven stories that take the reader backward and forward in time, weaving a complex story of love, betrayal, and family connection.
As Phil reveals and reflects upon his relationships with those around him-his sister, his mother, his seafaring uncle, his adult friends, his lover, his enemies, even his absent father-we are pushed and pulled through time and given the opportunity to bear witness to his coming of age.
Phil is a young boy who slowly comes to grips with the world around him. He is also an outstanding character in a well thought out novel that speaks about life, love, loss, betrayal and truth.
Phil grows up with his twin sister in an old architectural mystery of a home called Visible. His mother is a mix of strength, confusion, independence and hope, who teaches her children not to care about what the Little People on the other side of town think of them.
And for the most part, people think they Phil is a young boy who slowly comes to grips with the world around him.
And for the most part, people think they are witches and stay well away. I was pulled into this story by not only the quality of the prose, but by all the little quirks and individualisms that made the characters seem very humane.
I though that was brilliant! It just is whats it is, a portrayal of the victories and struggles that we all go through and that in the end, hopefully, allow us to discover a bit more of ourselves.
I most definitely recommend this novel! Shelves: favorites , buddy-read. This was a wonderful book.
I enjoyed the characters, the setting and especially Visible , I kind of want to live there now , the story and the writing style.
Bo recommended it to me because it's about a gay boy without really being about him being gay, it's not a coming-out story, which I've gotten really tired of.
This book is so wonderful because it could be about anyone, Phil's being gay is only a small aspect of it, and he was a nice character even aside from being gay.
Y'know, the way I like This was a wonderful book. Y'know, the way I like my characters most. I felt all the feelings that needed to be felt, I got through this book incredibly fast because it's engaging and fast even when it isn't particularly action-packed, interesting, and subtly and quietly beautiful.
I'm a bit sad we didn't get to see more Kat near the end, because I needed that kind of closure even if Phil didn't yet , but other than that there aren't any things that were negative about this book to me.
It's enormously recommended for anyone that wants a nice coming-of-age story and a book that deals mostly with family, friendship, love, secrets and life.
This actually is the best book I've ever read so far. To me it is quite atmospheric and quietly deals with issues not only concerning homosexuality but also coming of age in general.
I read it several times and always found something new to relate to. I was - again and again - astonished by the mostly saddening events being put into an particularly soothing environment.
Jun 08, julia rated it really liked it Shelves: young-adult , fiction. This novel threw me right into a book hangover.
While in the beginning I thought this would be a drag — it felt very slow-going —, a hundred pages in I was properly captivated.
I thoroughly enjoyed the characters that Steinhöfel created: they all felt very real, flawed and imperfect, and thus all the more relatable.
I really tried to finish it just to finish it, but who am I kidding lol. Apr 11, Ray Tonks rated it it was amazing Shelves: young-adult , thought-provoking , inspiration , books-by-german-authors , with-a-lovestory , lgbt-charas , contemporary.
I liked this book even more than the first time I read it about 2 years ago! In the beginning, it seemed a bit boring and cheesy because of the protagonist's passivity and the many metaphors, but it gets better, especially in the end.
The description of the house "Visible" and the nature, combined with a lot of figurative language, creates a mythical atmosphere.
Phil's and Dianne's childhood is hard - due to their mother's bad reputation they have the status of outsiders and "Witch-children" - bu I liked this book even more than the first time I read it about 2 years ago!
Phil's and Dianne's childhood is hard - due to their mother's bad reputation they have the status of outsiders and "Witch-children" - but it seems to be just like a fairytale; with the "castle" they live in, the "enemies" from the other side of the river they fight in an adventurous battle and the strange people they meet on their way, they create a world of their own, in which they are the heroes.
While reading, the many flashbacks distract from the actual storyline and the events are easily mixed up in their chronological order.
However, they help to understand the characters better. What I really liked about this book is the big development the characters go through.
Phil experiences a lot of pain, learns and fails, and even with the end of the book, his story seems to have only just begun.
It is an open ending, and in some points not a good one, but it is full of hope. All in all, this book is a beautiful, quiet story, that may not only be suitable to read by adolescents.
Idk tending more and more to 5 stars! Oct 27, Zenia rated it really liked it. Initially, this was gonna get 3 stars. And I wasn't even going to finish the book.
But I didn't give up and charged through till the end. I realised that this is a kind of story that you need to be patient with.
You need to really understand that even though it is not exciting and not many things are happening, it is still very important.
This book is about loving, loosing, giving, taking, finding out who you are and finding your place in the world. It is about family, friends, trust and betrayal Initially, this was gonna get 3 stars.
It is about family, friends, trust and betrayal. About what it right and wrong, and who decides those things. Phil, Dianne and Glass.
A strange little family, not in terms of the world. But in terms of "Those Out There" - what Glass calls the people from the town that her family lives near.
These three are so different but also so similar. At times you wouldn't think they are a family, but at other times, like when they are judged by "Those Out There", you can really tell how close they are and how much they have been through together.
There are lots and lots of little characters throughout the story, which in a way are all main characters. They each have a history and a little story that comes with it.
Some of which I couldn't figure out the point of. But that is probably just me. This book is not for everyone. If you are willing to be patient and understanding, then give it a go.
But I cannot guarantee that you will like it. I hope you like it, and hope you understand it. Because in the end this is a very beautiful and deep story.
However, it is my favourite book and that is the simplest way to put it. It's a coming of age novel, really, and the main character is gay.
But his sexuality isn't the main focus of the book, and that normalises homosexuality. One can be gay and not have ot be the main focus of their life.
When I read this book, I was having the customary sexuality crisis. This book played a major part in helping me accepting my own nature.
The writing is beautiful. Steinhöfel is a master with words. The prose seems more like poetry, and it repeatedly whisks you away.
This novel easily entrances you, takes you away to some magical area of Germany, and makes you feel everything that Phil, Diana, Glass feels.
There's the main story, and then there is intervals when moments when Phil recounts past experiences -- all very profound happenings that shaped him into who he is today.
This is most definitely a read that I recommend. I can only hope that the sequel of sorts is translated into English soon.
I've rather enjoyed this book, aside from some minor issues. The development of the plot is a bit uneven, slow paced in the first half and too eventful near the end.
But the characters are very lifelike, both lovable and irritating, their motivation and behavior understandable and realistic even when very silly.
The atmosphere built by author is perfect, it's easy to imagine yourself in Visible and nearby town, everything is very vivid.
The constellation of incidental characters is another littl I've rather enjoyed this book, aside from some minor issues. The constellation of incidental characters is another little charming gem of the book.
The ending would be not for everybody's taste. It is not happy, it is not tragic, and it feels a bit like deus ex machin twist of the plot, which I didn't like.
But overall impression from the book is good, and I readily recommend it for anyone who like deep and thoughtful coming-of-age books about young adults who have problems connecting with other people and what young adult have not, eh?
Aug 15, Nadin rated it it was amazing Shelves: children-or-young-adult , favorites. I fell in love with it back then - still loving it now.
Jan 01, Elisa rated it really liked it. An emotional, captivating story, incredibly beautiful writing style.
This book is so much more than just a tale about a teenage boy trying to come to grips with his sexuality--to believe or conclude as much is a total disservice to both the characters and the reader.
If you enjoy a fast paced plot and pages of dialogue--this book isn't for you. But if you enjoy getting to know a character--so intimately that when the book is over, you wonder when you'll see him again, then welcome to Visible, the large looming house on the hill.
Auch sonst erhielt der Film nach seinem Kinostart überwiegend positive Kritiken. Der Film wurde in die Vorauswahl zum Deutschen Filmpreis aufgenommen.
Am Rande der Pressekonferenz im Rahmen der Premiere in Moskau wurde der Film von einigen Journalisten und Kritikern als Propaganda für nicht traditionelle sexuelle Beziehungen unter Jugendlichen abgelehnt, die in Russland nicht in den Vertrieb kommen dürfe.
Kirill Raslogow, der Programmdirektor des Filmfestivals, hatte seine Landsleute jedoch vorgewarnt: Dieser Film könnte das Publikum schockieren.
Sie verstehen, dass sie es mit Problemen zu tun bekämen. Der Film wurde vom Publikum in Moskau dennoch überraschend freundlich aufgenommen.
