Christiane F. was a really good movie about a beautiful looking 13 year old girl living in Berlin who's life slowly demises as she starts to hang with the wrong people and eventually succumbs to trying heroin.
The movie is really interesting as it's not a far-fetched story, and it beautifully portrays how nice souls can be slowly but surely destroyed by drugs, and the acting by all in it was pretty remarkable actually, considering this was made so long ago it really is quite impressive.
I also found the way the movie had been directed brilliant. From the get go all is great, the music scene is buzzing with David Bowie in town doing a live concert, and here are these youngsters experimenting with acid and cannabis, but as the heroin and problems start to unravel the movie takes a much deeper darker approach here on in.
If you enjoyed the movie Trainspotting then you will surely love Christiane F., but the one major difference being that I thought Trainspotting glamorised drub abuse a little, this seems like such a more accurate account of what really can and does happen.
