The filming is very clean, sometimes uncommon and in good coherence with the narrative and sound track. The young actor has a promising carrier.
I was afraid he might be stuck in the same attitude for the whole movie, but at the end, he shows a wide palette of reactions.
If you're concerned about showing this movie to teenager, I would probably let him watch it if he's not too stupid and accompanied. I'm not the type of guys prohibiting movies to kids, but in this case, you want to avoid misinterpretations and a trivialization of death.
Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. How can a most entertaining story become a hackneyed mess at the end? In "Coconut Hero" Mike is a bit different than the other teens his age.
He's a critical thinker, a realist, and having this type of insight into life at his age can be, and is, a confusing state of mind.
He's the only one in his school that has not been absorbed into the group thinking that is so part of being accepted by others. And being accepted by others is most important in teen years.
So Mike decides to end his life although he does not appear to be depressed. His attempt fails. But the aftermath of this attempt at suicide brings the feeling of liberation to him.
Director: Florian Cossen and Writer: Elena von Saucken portray Mike as a comical innocent, he is an only child of a hair dresser divorced mother with a brash no-nonsense personality, and the school counselor and therapist seem at at loss in how to deal with him because he is so non-threatening and reserved.
Then the dance instructor Miranda enters Mike's life. Along the way Mike's father shows up! Mike absorbs sound bites from a minister and a funeral director.
All these bits and parts don't quite fit together for him. Here's where the story starts to fall apart. Mike leaves home, striking out alone, destination - whatever.
By chance Miranda just happens to be in need along a deserted road and Mike comes to her aide. Mike gets his wish but with an unexpected twist.
All ends happily - for the most part!! You just spent an hour and twenty minutes watching this story, you will like and care about Mike, Miranda is a plus for all involved and then the writer takes a 'soap opera' turn in the story and for the next fifteen minutes you must suffer a confusing montage of Mikes life!
It turns out Tyson has been living with an undetected brain tumor for several months that threatens to take his life if left untreated.
While this type of news would be devastating to most people, Tyson is ecstatic that his prays to die have been answered.
Concerned about his medical state, a psychologist Udo Kier in a cameo that is far too brief recommends that the young man take a dance therapy class.
Reluctant to go at first, Tyson finds himself drawn to the instructor Miranda Bea Santos. Teens that are picked on by their peers, frequently embarrassed by the adults around them and are ultimately too self-centered to realize that their problems are not really that bad in the grand scheme of things.
What sets Coconut Hero apart from some of its contemporaries though is its restraint. When they do indulge in such endeavors — take the delightful choreographed bicycle sequence for example — it never feels like the central narrative is being overshadowed.
Mike becomes overwhelmed with the conflict between choosing to fulfill his wishes of ending his life versus his thoughts and feelings surrounding his new relationship with Miranda.
These feelings lead Mike into making a spontaneous decision to run away with Miranda on a road-trip. After witnessing Miranda being struck by a car and suffering an unfortunate death whilst still on their trip together, Mike decides to get the surgery that will remove his tumor.
Ultimately, Mike chooses life. The director, Florian Cossen, is a German-Canadian and pays homage to a large portion of his youth spent in a small Canadian city by filming Coconut Hero within Canada in a similarly small town.
Marie, Ontario , a town in northern Ontario. The film is a German-Canadian co-production from Toronto's Six Island Productions and Germany-based UFA Fiction.
Search Engine Films out of Toronto distributed the movie out of Canada. Barry Hertz of The Globe and Mail praises Florian Cossen's ability to cast an impressive number of European actors for a small film, but describes the film's plot by saying "there's nothing new here that hasn't been mined, ahem, to death in other, similar genre entries".
Harald Mühlbeyer, a German critic from the Munich Film Festival , explains that the title is confusing and generally unrelated to the content of the film itself, but is quoted as saying that overall, Coconut Hero is a good film: "[The title] is the only mistake in this outstanding one masterpiece", as translated from German.
In , Coconut Hero was nominated for the Golden Eye Award at the Zurich Film Festival.
