Grim film with an amazing theme song
10 August 2013 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

This film follows German street kid Willi (Charly Wierczejewski) as he aimlessly bounces around the city of Hamburg. He seems to subsist on stealing tip jars in restaurants and restrooms, but comes under the wing Theo (Walter Kohut), whose main gig is stealing from men picking up boys at the train station. Theo has bigger plans though, robbing the armored car picking up cash at a big supermarket. The only person who takes an positive interest in Willi is journalist Frank (Michael Degen), but even his generous ways can't keep Willi on the straight-and-narrow and even end up hurting his relationship with his girlfriend. I'm familiar with German director Roland Klick but this is actually the first film of his I've seen. It is a decidedly downbeat affair and Klick succeeds in making Hamburg look like a completely hopeless hell on Earth. The perfect film for a depressing German double feature alongside CHRISTIANE F. (1981). Make sure to check out the theme song "Celebration" by Marius West that appears several times in the film.
