    Exactly @Lebster. It was kinda hip and relatable, so it didn´t necessarily repell kids but also had some kind of pull.

    @John: Mostly with my own kids. They didn´t watch through the movie and were bored. Movies like ‘Requiem for a dream’ worked better for them. Though the result is similar the way to addiction is different today.

    I agree with the comment above. i saw this when it came out in the cinemas and it was a very powerful experience. It was also a commercial hit because it was kind of hip in its day.
    Thanks a lot for this good quality rip!

    This is a super realistic depiction of 1970s/80s West-Berlin’s dark side. Having lived through that time in Berlin I can assure you of that.

    Because of the convincing acting performance the movie has always been regarded as a bit ambiguous and probably even led some kids into the abyss.

    All the scenes were shot in original places.

    Highly recommended, though I found out it doesn’t work for younger generations any more. That kind of drug addiction seems not to be relatable any more. Nowadays it’s other drugs in different settings.

      Sure it was realistic. But leading kids into the abyss? i guess becoming a junkie and barely a teen prostitute was really attractive. i wouldn’t be too sure to assume that it doesn’t work on the younger generations. How did you actually find it didn’t work nowadays? Been to a big city with the kids doing anything for drugs? Still happens. The fentanyl and opioid crisis leaves its users in similar situations.
