I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I was quite eager to check it out again. To be honest, while watching this movie again, I was actually surprised by how weak the acting actually was, especially during the beginning, but it might be explained by the fact that the actors were all very young and had never acted before. Even so, it was still a powerful ... read more

incredible movie. if you are looking for something to have fun with, don't even think about watching it, but if you are willing to stay in front of the dark TV screen for hours after the movie ends being completely lost in your thoughts, this is the movie for you !

This movie portrays the drug scene in Berlin in the 70s, following tape recordings of Christiane F. 14 years old Christiane lives with her mother and little sister in a typical multi-storey apartment building in Berlin. She's fascinated by the 'Sound', a new disco with most modern equipment. Although she's legally 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.
Release date: 2 April 1981

" Notes: To be honest, while watching this movie again, I was actually surprised by how weak the acting actually was, especially during the beginning, but it might be explained by the fact that the actors were all very young and had never acted before. Even so, it was still a powerful and shattering movie. Indeed, even though it might not be the most hardcore movie concerning drugs, it is definitely near the top. Basically, there was absolutely no joy, no happiness whatsoever in this movie, just"

"Christiane F. "Piss and shit everywhere. If you look close enough at first sight it looks fine, with its lawns... and shopping centers. But the staircases of the flats stink! What are the children to do, when they are playing outside? They shit themselves waiting for the lift, so instead they do it in the lobby.""

500 Essential Cult Movies (502 movies items)

" Based on the autobiography of Christiane Felscherinow, Christiane F. is an entirely unglamorous look at the degradation of drug addiction against a solid backdrop of David Bowie songs. This is not Sunday afternoon viewing; the film is darker than dark, depressing, and graphic, but it is a remarkably evenhanded (if not at all shy) depiction of what it was like being a teenaged junkie in seventies Berlin.
