The Image of a Generation.
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.

Actors recite bad. The film has aged badly.

Watched this film again after ~15 years, and I'm surprised to see that it still holds up, despite the cringeworthy line delivery during the first part of the film. A mostly surreal work, it's even more shattering when you know that this is happening everywhere, everytime.
