Amazon Prime Series | Director: Anna-Katharina Maier (2022)
Damaged Goods Story: Sentenced to group therapy by their parents 15 years ago as disgruntled teenagers, the clique of Nola, Mads, Hennie, Tia and Hugo still stick together through all of life’s ups and downs. But while they help each other through heartbreak, existential angst and other adversities of life, they are at loggerheads with their own coming-of-age. Nola leads us through the stories in Damaged Goods with her own podcast, in which she discusses not only her innermost feelings and problems, but also the personal and intimate stories of her friends – without their knowledge.
The cheeky funky sound of Damaged Goods reflects the life of the group of friends and their diverse adventures. The music in Damaged Goods tonally serves the humorous moments of the series with classic comedy elements. A band lineup for the emotional moments rounds out Damaged Goods ‘ score. In addition to the score, David Reichelt also composed numerous songs that permeate the series in their range from rap and techno to pop and funk to folk-pop, supporting the dramaturgy of the plot at the appropriate moment. The title track of Damaged Goods is a light, loose and folky-pop anthem that spreads good mood and invites you to sing along.
