Storyline

Sunny is the singer of band trying to establish itself in the music-scene of East-Berlin. They play regular gigs in small towns, but Sunny feels out of touch with the audience and her life as a whole. She begins a relationship with the amateur saxophonist and studied philosopher Ralph who writes her a very personal song - but his obsession with death and unfaithful lifestyle is not for her. After getting into a quarrel with a band member who harasses her and telling off a show-host she is thrown out of the band. Abandoned, she struggles to regain control over her life.

Not your average Konrad Wolf film!
12 April 2004 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

Other Konrad Wolf films tend to handle political/war issues.. this one is more about day to day life in GDR. Toss in a bit of personal ambition/desire and you have a very unique film addressing career issues of 1970's Berlin. Filled with questions about the entertainment industry, women's issues, sexual liberation and more.....

Solo Sunny is not only an exploration into class issues (that where supposedly abolished by the GDR) but one into the existential meaning of why any of us are on this planet, no matter what our religion, nationality, ethnicity or gender. It is important to realize that Sunny represents, if only symbolicaly, many of the non- mainstream GDR citizens in her quest to realize her dreams.
