This movie portrays the drug scene in Berlin in the 1970s, following tape recordings of Christiane F. 14-year-old Christiane lives with her mother and little sister in a typical multi-story apartment building in Berlin. She’s fascinated by ‘The Sound’, a new disco with the most modern equipment. Although legally she’s too young, she asks a friend to take her. There, she meets Detlef, who’s in a clique where everybody’s on drugs. Step by step she gets drawn deeper into the scene.

User review:

“Christiane F” is the first film made by German director Ulrich Edel.The movie looks almost like a documentary what makes it even more disturbing.The acting is excellent-Natja Brunckhorst truly shines as a Christiane,who slowly becomes addicted to heroin.The atmosphere is really gritty and dark,and the film pulls no punches with its depiction of Berlin’s drug world.So if you liked “Requiem for a Dream” or “Naked Lunch” give this one a look.My rating:10 out of 10.

Director: Uli Edel (as Ulrich Edel)
Writers: Uli Edel (additional writer), Kai Hermann (book)
Stars: Natja Brunckhorst, Eberhard Auriga, Peggy Bussieck
