F*ck for Forest (18)

F*ck for Forest (18)

Documentary, Drama

 Berlin's Fuck for Forest is one of the world's most bizarre charities: based on the idea that sex can change the world, the NGO raises money for their environmental cause by selling home-made erotic films on the Internet.

The critical consensus

A interesting curio that veers from saucy to serious in disorientating fashion.

**(*)(*)(*)David Parkinson, Empire Online, 15/04/2013

Marczak would seem to have an open goal here but lacks any sort of rigour in his prosecution: these planet-savers look a lot like hippie narcissists, yet he refuses to take anyone to task.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 18/04/2013

It's all a littel embarrassing…until you realise it’s a film not about Fuck For Forest, but the untenable nature of charity.

Violett Lucca, Little White Lies, 18/04/2013

There's an unintentional comedy in this curious, entertaining documentary.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 18/04/2013

It’s very amusing stuff, but Marczak’s film takes a turn for the more serious in the second half.

****(*)Miles Fielder, The List, 18/04/2013

Michal Marczak's movie about a group of oddball environmental crusaders in Berlin recalls Werner Herzog without ever equalling him.

Philip French, The Observer, 21/04/2013

It’s unintentionally funny in places, but when the group heads for the Amazon and is confronted with the realities of practical activism, the film fails to interrogate their failings in any meaningful way.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 02/05/2013

A Berlin-based collective fundraise for environmental causes by making online porn. As much fun as it sounds.
