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.

Trivia

While director Konrad Wolf was very fond of Wolfgang Kohlhaase's script, he had trouble with its subject matter and believed it just wasn't his kind of story. However, he reportedly changed his mind during a car ride from the film studios in Babelsberg to Berlin, stating that he had figured out what he would like to achieve with this film. See more »

solo sunny is a film about women's wants and quest for a place in society
27 September 2005 | by (Manila, Philippines) – See all my reviews

Sunny is a singer in a roving band. She has a restless life. She is single and she lives on her own. She seeks her individual self-fulfillment. She shows her individuality by living a bohemian life, wearing glamorous makeup and acting provocatively most of the time. She has a feisty personality. Sunny has one ambition: to be a star. Throughout the film, she gets ready for a big solo performance.

I like the way she was portrayed. Her rebelliousness has a certain appeal which adds to the charm of the movie. DEFA's female characters are often portrayed as regular workers. They have no glamorous trappings. In spite of Sunny's "glamor," (as required by her singing job) we can still see that she works hard. Unlike Hollywood films, DEFA women characters are not portrayed as temptresses, vamps etc.
