Cyril (Aaron Hilmer) is intelligent, quick-witted and a talented rapper. Actually the best conditions to be popular at school - if it weren't for the huge nose that Cyril has to struggle with. She makes him an outsider and often a mockery of the school. No wonder Cyril doesn't feel like taking a class trip to Berlin. This changes abruptly when his new classmate Roxy (Luna Wedler) enters the bus. She doesn't seem to mind Cyril's nose and the two, who are absolutely on the same wavelength, quickly become friends. Too bad it's only friendship for Roxy, because she has fallen for the shy Rick (Damian Hardung). Even the ripper Benno (Jonas Ems) has his eye on the new one and Cyril realizes that he has to act to protect Roxy from the greasy Benno. He reluctantly starts a coupling action that puts Rick in an extremely good light. But since in reality it is not the brightest light, the dizziness threatens to fly up soon…
A "Cyrano de Bergerac" variation for the "Fack Ju Göhte" generation - can that go well? It can, as Aaron Lehmann proves with "The most beautiful girl in the world". Together with Lars Kraume ("The Silent Classroom") and Judy Horney, the director has written a cheerful script, which, apart from the well-known set pieces of the classic Edmond Rostand, also has some really clever word jokes, charming characters and convincing teen romanticism to offer. The gags are set here and there below the belt. But whenever the film threatens to become too obscene, it is caught by a good portion of irony and surprisingly profound humour.
Of course I'm aware that I don't belong to the target group anymore. For me the best Cyrano adaptation is still "Roxanne" with Steve Martin. At the latest when Cyril masks his battle raps in best Sido manner, then you almost inevitably have to shake your head as a spectator of Ü30 or Ü40. There are people who like that? Who see this as art? You did? Well, you don't have to like everything. To cut a long story short: Although I've outgrown the target group for a few years now, the film has fully convinced me with its charm and its often surprisingly intelligent wordplay.
That's also because with Aaron Hilmer and Luna Wedler two really likeable and pleasantly unconsumed actors were found. They make it absolutely believable why Cyril and Roxy understand each other so well from the first moment on, why a connection develops between them, in which Cyril's big nose plays no role at all. All this makes sure that "The most beautiful girl in the world" has become a really well done comedy for young viewers, that makes use of a lot of well-known teen movie set pieces, yet puts them together in an original, funny and loveable way. For this there is a very clear one: Worth seeing!
