Based on a true story about a bored 14-year-old girl who seeks excitement in the seamy drug scene of ’70s Berlin, Christiane F. is one of the most shocking and controversial films of our time. This visually adventurous, gripping story is enhanced by David Bowie’s soundtrack, including a live performance and such Bowie classics as Station to Station, Heroes, Boys Keep Swinging and others. Startling in its honesty, Christiane F. is a powerful, unforgettable look at youth and innocence seduced, and then imprisoned, by modern life’s compelling dark side.The shocking story of an alienated 14-year-old girl who, along with her boyfriend, becomes addicted to heroin and involved in prostitution to support their habit in the German metropolis of Berlin. Based on a true story, this gripping tale features a live performance by David Bowie, who also performs the theme song as well as many of his classic hits. An early effort from the director of Last Exit to Brooklyn and The Baader-Meinhof Complex.
